Captain America

Hello there, this is one of my scheduled posts while I am taking some time off. It was my nephew's birthday this week, he is a big fan of super heroes, so I decided to theme his card around Captain America's shield.
 
 
I started off by cutting lots of circles for the shield using the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Dies. I wanted to inlay the design so I first cut a large circle from red cardstock. I then cut this using a smaller circle die to create a frame. I die cut a white circle which would fit inside and repeated the steps to create a frame and then another red circle frame inside. The middle piece is a blue circle which I cut a Nestabilities star from. I then cut the star from white so that I could inlay them together. I went around the edges of the shapes with Distress Ink and an ink blending tool to create a bit of depth. It doesn't look like much in the photos but it does make a difference in real-life!
 
 
I took the seven number from the PTI Block Alphabet Numbers Die Collection and cut this five times from black cardstock. I took a white 5.5" x 5.5" square card base and adhered the shield pieces to it using tape runner. I then added the seven on to the star using liquid glue. I took the sentiment from the YNS Tag Banner Sentiments set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. I then took the letters for my nephew's name from the Doodlebug Teensy Type Stickers set, added foam tape on to the back and added these to the card also.

It was a lot of fun creating this card. I really like trying to tailor the cards I make for my niece and nephews to their interests. Last year I made my nephew a Lego card, so I am hoping he will like this Captain America one! Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you are well and have a fabulous rest of the day!
