TGIF Star Wars Birthday Card and Envelope

Birthday Cards, Cards, Non traditional

Welcome! Today is Friday, so that means a TGIF post. I’ve been struggling with my crafty mojo recently but I feel like I’m finally getting my stride back. What do you do to help with your creative blocks?

So, for this week’s card, I created a Star Wars birthday card and matching envelope for a Star Wars obsessed eight year old. I couldn’t have made this card without the help of my Silhouette machine, some free clip art files, and a free Star Wars font.

As a bonus I also created a coordinating envelope. I create a coordinating envelope to go with almost every card I make, but I’ve never done a video showing how I do it. With the help of my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board it’s a cinch.

That’s no moon! It’s a space station!


If you’re curious about how to install a font to use with your Silhouette Portrait, I have a video showing how on my YouTube channel. You can watch it here.

That’s it for for today. Until next time…may the force be with you.




Disclaimer: I do not own any of the Star Wars images, nor am I affiliated with Disney or Star Wars.

TGIF #2 – Flat Vellum Shaker Dream Catcher Card

Cards, Shaker Card, TGIF

Welcome! Last week I started what I hope to be a weekly feature on my YouTube Channel: TGIF. Each week, I’ll just let the camera roll as I create, colour, and plan.

This week, I was inspired by the free cut file for Silhouette Studio. Each week the Silhouette Design Store releases a free cut file download. Some weeks they even give away bonus files (like for World Scrapbooking Day).

I wanted to share some more inspiration for flat shaker cards to make sure to watch along as I create a flat dream catcher shaker.



Thanks so much for dropping by! I’ll be back again on Wednesday with a brand new Colour Me! challenge post. Until then,
