Yoda One Valentines Card

Yoda One Valentines Card

Hello. I hope you’re all well.

Valentines day is almost upon us. This year I was determined to make my card in plenty of time. Yes yes yes I did it (does happy dance around the room). No last minute rushing around. It’s not pink and super heartsy but a heart die was used, so romantic yes?

I liked the sentiment, it’s something I’ve been seeing around the intetwebs. Using my new Sizzix thinlits dies I cut the letters out twice (black for the shadow then again in green).

Yoda’s head. hands and feet were cut out of green card using circle dies and punches, a heart die cut in half for each ear. I tried making eyes but he started looking a bit scary so instead I embossed them with a circle die and now he’s looking quite thoughtful. Much better.

His jacket and trousers are cut from rectangles of grey card trimmed with a corner rounder.

The ray background has been embossed on opposing sides to give a light burst effect. I brayered lightly over the surface with embossing ink and heat embossed yellow embossing powder over the top.

Have to say Yoda is looking pretty cool here and I’m sure the other half will think it’s a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking time out of your day to read my ramblings. Till next time, have fun x
