Today I made this Sonic the Hedgehog card. As much as my kids enjoy the occasional video game veg-out... my nephew is a video game JUNKIE!! He's turning 7 (SEVEN!!) and he wants a Sonic party... this is after last years Mario party.
So here is the card he will get for his bday this year. I made it a window card, the circle in the center is filled with transparency plastic. The card base is 5" x 5" and only has a few layers.
Here is the inside. I printed the Sonic heads and created a shadow layer, added my sentiment (using "Nice Sonic" for my font) and attached it directly under the head layer on the front.
Here you can see I added a second Sonic head to the inside of the card front to finish off the whole card. I little border of the teal paper adds some great detail to the inside of the card.
See the window! :) Cute! I even added a couple layers of Glossy Accents to the gold rings. I just punched with my 3/4" punch and then centered my 1" punch to create uniform rings.
I added the sentiment tag to the front, a tag-line of Sonic's... and five gold rings to both sides of the card front. Gel pen stitches and three little brads (colored black with a Sharpie) finish off the card front.
I printed the Sonic heads onto white cardstock.
Cutting around him by hand was the best way to go.
And my SIL had me make the invites (that aren't quite finished - the party will be Sept 11th) and cupcake pics for the party. These were really quick. I printed them all onto white cardstock and punched with a 1 1/2" circle. Attached them to a "skinny craft stick" with hot glue, add the sentiment side too, and I was done.
I made 72 of these (two dozen of each of the three styles).
The sentiment side is using "Saga Title" font.
