May The Fourth Be With You!

Happy May the Fourth!
Star Wars is kind of a big deal in our house so I thought I'd make a fun anniversary card (because my 8th wedding anniversary is next week!) with a Star Wars theme.

I wanted to make Obi-Wan Kenobi's lightsaber and of course it had to light up!

I started out by designing my sentiment on the computer and printing it with my laser printer so I could add silver foil with my Minc machine. Next I stamped my background in versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. I designed the hilt of the lightsaber out of silver foil and black cardstock to look like Obi-Wan's and then cut the blade out of Neenah cardstock and colored it with Copics and a Wink of Stella pen. I cut a slit under where the blade would be on the background and then traced it onto a white card base and assembled my circuit and blue Chibi lights. I adhered everything together with foam tape and it was done! So fun! (but very hard to photograph at night since all of my lights for picture taking made the foil reflect all wonky!)

We'll probably be heading back to the zoo today. Every day when Bree wakes up she says "Circle Store (Target) and Joey Zoo (she loves the kangaroos at the zoo)?" and between those two choices I'd much rather waste an hour or two pushing the double stroller around the zoo when the weather's nice. The toy aisle at Target gets boring and I'm not tempted to redecorate our house at the zoo! Bree got the zoo membership as a birthday present last September and we'll definitely be renewing our membership. Now we just have to keep avoiding the mean peacock that likes to follow us around. ☺
