Birthday Boy!

OK, the idea for this birthday card for our friend's son was simple... the implementation? Not so much! The star took me forever, because I wanted to try the Chevron pattern making tip from Jennifer McGuire on the SC blog here but with one added step to adhere the pattern to a star and cut it out... oh boy!

The star pattern came from the Cricut Cartridge Joys of the Season - with a shape that cut out 3 stars, but I used just one, and cut them at relative size 5.5" to get the shadow as well. The letters were cut from the Creative Memories Traveler Cartridge, cut at relative size 2.1" (or 2.2"). I did a simple stitch around the edge to finish it off!
