A co-worker saw a card I made for another co-worker and decided that he wanted a card too. I do so love that! He wanted a Buffy the Vampire Slayer card. I told him that I would probably have to print something off and work with that because I can't really stamp a Buffy. A quick surf on Pintrest and I was able to find the following picture.
Pretty cool, right? I was more into a cartoony type of picture than using a real picture - it just looks more artsy to me. Less cutting and pasting and child-like, if you know what I mean. I printed the picture out three times on my computer on the gorgeously heavy Stamper's Select white cardstock from Papertrey Ink. No wimpy cardstock for me! I fussy cut around Buffy and the stake and axe that she is holding. I popped her up on stampin' dimensionals to make her more 3D-ish. Then I cut out the banners. I was disappointed that I had no light blue cardstock that matched those banners perfectly so I settled on Tempting Turquoise. Using some Papertrey Ink stamps I bent them to stamp Happy Birthday on the banners. Then I took my markers and traced around the banners to help them blend in better. The result is the card below. Not a great picture because you can't really see that Buffy is popped up. My co-worker loved it and that is what matters. I took the extra Buffy I printed and glued her to a refrigerator magnet. He loved that also. I found rolls of magnet at Goodwill for $1.00 and they are 5" across by 5' long - what a steal!
Hope you like it. Have a great night - Heidi
