Today’s Midweek Throw Down is to make birthday cards to stock up our shipper’s stash. I got the idea for this card from a Stampin’ Up! promotional video, but my Star Fleet emblem is quite different. I looked up images on the internet for Star Trek logos, and fashioned the star to come as closely to the real emblem as possible. The punches used for this emblem were the Large Oval and The Oval punches. When I found the angle I liked for the small punch, I used my practice emblem as a template. I then glued the yellow emblem onto black card stock and fussy cut the black edging with a pair of scissors. The star is a small star punch with the tip of a triangle punch placed under the top portion of the star. The “Love Long and Prosper” sentiment, was created and printed on my computer. I used the Word Window Punch to cut it out. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from “Bring on the Cake.” I used Versa Mark to first stamp the image onto the card and then heat embossed the image with white embossing powder. The bottom edge of the uniform shirt was hand cut. The papers used were Basic Black and More Mustard. All products used were purchased from Stampin’ Up!
With the upcoming Star Trek movie about to be released, I am sure there will be plenty of new and old “Trekkies”out there that will enjoy this card.
