Happy Birthday from the Dark Side for Anna

Hello everyone,

It's my daughter Anna's 15th Birthday today and I had to make a special card even though she told me she just wanted a Black card.  Black does seem to be her favourite colour of late.  Almost all her wardrobe is black.

My daughter is also a Star Wars fan so I decided her black card would be Darth Vader.  Here it is.

This card is an easel style.  I used a picture from the internet and paper pieced the helmet together.  There was a lot of handcutting involved.  Unfortunately., I'm out of practice and not really my strength at the moment after surgery.  Please don't look too close as the flaws will be seen, lol.

Here are more pics of the card

The greeting is from the Hostess stamp set called Happy Birthday everyone.

The inside of the card.  I've particially embossed the inside Whisper white card with the Lucky Stars embossing folder and used my Wink of Stella on some of them.

and a closeup of the Darth Vader mask

Happy Birthday Anna.  Here's a pic of her with a Birthday Cake that grandma brought over.  She's having a party with friends on the weekend, but we had a little family celebration already because we could not miss basketball practice this arvo.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh, goodness; TONS OF HAND CUTTING, Carolyn; wowow! You did a beautiful job and I saw no flaws! Your daughter is just beautiful! Can't believe how quickly they do grow! That cake is fantastic, too!! Wishing your daughter lots of birthday fun and a fabulous year to follow! Hugs! Donna W.

  2. Thanks Donna, you are too kind and yes Anna is quite the young lady now when she chooses to dress like one (not often), she's more into wearing her Band tees and jeans. Most people think she's a bit older than 15. xx
