From a galaxy not-so-far away! Whether it’s to celebrate a birthday, Star Wars Day (May 4th), or just to say “I love you”, this card trio is perfect for the ultimate Star Wars fan!
I love using fun and interesting fonts for my card sentiments. I used several different ones for this set. A quick google search can result in thousands of free options to upload into your own Word program. Simply print, cut, and add your own sentiments to your cards and projects!
Oh how I adore this R2 cutting die! He’s made from four layers of white and blue cardstock for dimension. When I was finished assembling him, I decided to use a very dark graph pattern background on my card base so that R2’s details really stand out!
I used bits of blue and silver in my layers for his accents. I also added a silver bead, red rhinestone and black epoxy dot for his upper embellishments. I used tiny slivers of foam mounting tape to make the cylinders on his “legs” more dimensional.
Next up is the C-3PO card using the cutting die from Scraps & Ink Crafts found HERE. When cut from plain black cardstock, this die shape wasn’t much to look at, but when cut from gold mylar paper, he looks fantastic!
C-3PO was much easier than he looks! He is cut from three layers of gold mylar paper stacked with foam mounting tape for dimension and has no other embellishments. Zero! The details are all impressions made with just the cutting die! The mylar paper can be a bit finicky to cut, so I had to run it with the die through my die cutting machine a couple of times for each layer. I used micro-tip scissors to trim any ragged edges that didn’t have a clean cut.
For this card, I used the STAR WARS die cut found HERE with a small piece of holographic cardstock I saved from some nail polish packaging from years ago (Yes, I keep interesting packaging just for moments like these.) I had just enough to barely fit the cutting die! The card background layers use a holographic glitter paper as well as this awesome star patterned paper and blue glitter cardstock from my local craft store.
I knew when I decided to save that small piece of holographic packaging, that I would eventually find the perfect use for it. I think I found it! I wish I had huge sheets of it now that I have the perfect cutting die to use with it!
May the force be with you!
