Star Trek Birthday Card

Hello! Check me out, posting again so soon! :)

I was going through some cards/projects I made recently trying to decide what I should post about and decided I had to share this card. It's one of my favorites of all the cards that I have made. I try to make birthday cards every year for my co-workers. They seem to really appreciate the creativity and time I put into the cards even though they are all designers like me. :)

One of these co-workers/friends is really into Star Trek among other things and out of the blue, I thought up this Star Trek card. I asked one of my sons (I have very artistic kids) to draw a hand (I'm not so good at drawing) giving the Vulcan Salute (I looked that up). I also had him draw the Starfleet Communicator Badge (looked that up too). I cut out both the hand and the badge and colored them with my colored pencils.

I then put together a center step card and added the hand on an Action Wobble and the badge in the upper corner. I didn't have a stamp that went with the card, so I had my husband write a saying in his best block handwriting. There were many of us involved in the making of this card.  :)

I think it turned out pretty cool and I was very proud of my creation. Here is a picture.

Thanks for stopping by and leave me a comment if you wish. I'd love to hear from you. Stop back tomorrow if you can. Tomorrow is a special day for me. :)
