Feel the Force

One of my husband's close friends had a birthday this week so I was tasked with creating a card and there's only one place to go for a card him and that's "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away".....

It was pretty simple really - I did him a storm trooper last year, but this year we went with Luke Skywalkers light saber.  I found a decent image online and imported into the silhouette and used the trace facility to get the shape correct.  It was then a case of simply cutting the outline from white card and colouring it with copics and metallic promakers.  For the actual light part I used a strip of glitter card and added copic ink and a touch more glitter in the form of stickles.  Before sticking to the black card base I added a "glow" using green perfect pearls.   I finished with some green faux stitching using a sakura green glitter pen.

I'll link this up to this week's CASual Friday's challenge which is to use real or faux stitching


  1. Such a clever card Tara....the light saber really looks like its lit up
