I am spending a rainy Saturday afternoon making some cards – and I thought I’d show you one I made for my brother, who is turning 30 this week.  

He is a huge Star Wars fan, and also a bit of a maths geek, so I went with a Roman numerals idea –  XXX is 30 in Roman numerals, so I thought I’d make the Xs out of light sabres!

I used Stampin’ Up! punches.  The handles of the light sabres are made from the jewelry tag punch. The blades are from the word window punch. 

The Death Star image is one I used on a Yoda birthday card a few months ago. I’ve uploaded the image to Dropbox for anyone who’d like to use it (the link is in the previous Yoda post). 

I made the inside a pop-up card:

The good folks at Flaming Text have a Star Wars text generator, which I used to make the image. You can use the image for free as long as you keep on their watermark (which is there in my card, I promise, just hard to see in the photo!)

I hope he likes his card! 

Thanks for reading.
