Movie Star Card

This is the card I made this week to send off to our son.  He is currently studying digital film and television and has been doing some overtime on his assignments.  Apparently home at 3am the other night and back filming the next night but he sounded very keen about it all.  So this card started with this wonderful camera that I have had in my stash for years.  Yes, when I received it I could see no use for it at all, how things change.  I next went in search of a sketch and found the one at Little Miss Muffets but have been back and read the rules and my card doesn't really qualify however, I enjoyed using the sketch.  I found the star paper and the card grew from that.  So glad it was double sided paper so I didn't have to find matching paper.  Next I used a lot of my metallic card stock for the backing.  The tan paper was a little bare so I added a row of star brads down the side.  

I then thought I should make a special envelope with my wonderful new Envelope Punch Board which makes envelope making so very easy.  I found this paper in my stash that I thought worked really well.

Thanks for visiting and taking a look. :-)

  7. Ohh, this card is cool Merry - I love it. I am sure your son will treasure it. Love how well your envelope paper matches the card. I will have to check out this envelope maker - it sounds interesting. Does it do envelopes in any size? Often I do any odd-sized card and then I can't find an envelope in the right size - drives me mad!!
