He's a Star ! Birthday Shaker Card for my Superstar Son xx

We had a birthday in the house yesterday.    My boy Tom turned 29 !

He won't accept shop bought cars from his mum - so I hit the craft room.

To me he is a superstar, so this card is kind of fitting.  The star die is retired but you could make this style of card using any of our many framelits dies.

Star Framelits Dies, Shaker Card

I used my Minc to foil the personalised birthday sentiment on the front of the card.  I love the white foiling on Tempting Turquoise card stock.  It really "pops".

I do like shaker cards, and think I shall be experimenting with some more designs.

He was happy with it - so that makes me happy too !

Thanks for stopping by today.

Back with another project at the weekend.

  1. I know the feeling about shop bought cards. Everyone in my family looks to see what I've done next. A great card x

  2. Wow. This birthday card looks really impressive and I believe that your birthday star will be much happy to receive this card. Thanks for sharing the idea for us too.

  3. Happy birthday Tom! Lovely card Linda. Always so difficult to make "mancards".

    1. Thanks Jane. I really don't enjoy doing masculine cards at all !

    1. Hi Linda. I tried sending you an email but it wouldn't work. This card is just awesome, like you!! I so love it. It's perfect.

      What company made the star die, if you don't mind sharing that info. I would love to make a card like this for my grandson.

      Thank You, Laura

    2. Hi Lenore - that you so much and really pleased you like my card. Its a retired set of Star Dies by Stampin' Up! You could try Ebay maybe ?

  5. Thank you, Linda, for the information, I do have a set of Stampin' Up star dies, but yours looks like one big star die. Anxious to give "your card" a try!!
