Captain America!

Hi my friends!

My friends little boy is having a birthday on Saturday and he loves Captain America!  I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do for his card and then realized I could easily replicate his shield using my Silhouette Studio.  I drew 4 circles, each a little smaller than the last.  Then I added a star in the inner circle and resized it until it fit perfectly.  I welded two of the largest circles together to turn it into a card and then cut everything out separately.   I used a bone folder to fold the card and then used my ATG gun to adhere all of the circles and star to the card!

I really like how it turned out!  I had a blue gift bag in my stash and finished off the gift with red, white and blue tissue paper!  I love how my silhouette actually saves me money.  The Captain America gift bag at the store was $4.99.  I had everything here to make this one for free :-)

fun, huh?!
