Isaac's Birthday Card August 27, 2009

This is the birthday card that I made for my grandson Issac this year he turned seven.  He just loves Star Wars and when stampinup came out with this new stamp I just had to do something for him out of the set.  I used an old floppy disk to create this card.  The large black circle is the inside of the floppy where your data is stored on the disk.  The small piece of wire was also inside. The small black horseshoe thingy below the ribbon on the right is the right protector thingy.  The metal rectangle was on the outside and made for a perfect frame for "Happy Birthday Human" saying.  I used pop can strips run through a textured background on the bigshot. Then punched them out with a circle punch and cut to fit corners.  I glued them down with crystal effects but was not sure if it would hold forever. Just to be on the safe side I included an eyelet in each corner.  I could not find any bolts or nuts around in my toolbox but the large grommet worked fine from stampinup.  The top picture is of the outside of my card and the bottom open card is of the inside.
