May The Fourth Be With You - May 4, 2016

Welcome to the

where we will celebrate all things Star Wars related.
Whether it's a card, scrapbook page, party plan or quilt, it's related to 
the Star Wars franchise in some way and we want to share it with you.

So in a galaxy far, far away there's a crafter working tirelessly to
create some movie magic for you...now on with the projects at hyper speed.

I created a Yoda card.

I pulled an image from Google and traced it with my Silhouette software. I took the image and offset it to create a background for the card, which I cut two pieces of. I then scored the top one about a half an inch down on his head so that I could glue the two pieces together and it would have a "hinge" to fold. Then I glued all the layers. I have shown the sizes I cut everything at. I wanted it to be a big card. It probably would have been a lot easier to cut the layers from vinyl, but I wanted that paper pieced look. Also, if you're going to cut an image like this, I would turn the overcut on in your Sil software and also decrease your pressure. Mine was too high which is why there are white "tears" on my paper. Like all handmade things, it's not perfect and that's why we love to do what we do. Hope you enjoyed my card today!
