I made this for a very special four-year-old’s birthday party this weekend. Like it? Want to make one yourself?
I created the SVG cut file for my Cricut SCAL. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for the free file (WordPress doesn’t let me attach SVG files), if you want to make a card for yourself as well.
For Emmet’s outfit, I chalked the edges with light blue and then added some custom details with a Sharpie and strips of hand-cut gum wrapper. I printed out this image on the side here so that I could cut out the hair, smile and Emmet badge.
I also cut out several .5 inch circles and inked them with green Color Box Cat’s Eye chalk ink, before affixing them to the background with foam pop dots.
Inside, is a custom song, based on the “Everything is Awesome” tune from the Lego Movie:
“Everything is awesome!
Everything is awesome when you’re no longer three.
Everything is awesoooooome
At your birthday party!”
Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy crafting!
Woo! Christmas! I love this season SO much that I’m doing my part to spread the joy by giving away this three-card collection! I have lovingly designed these one-of-a-kind creations with a large die-cut greeting embellishment – complete with hand-cut star and pink rhinestone. I have also added baker’s twine and festive polka dot cardstock along the bottom. The inside is also fully embellished (just like a present!).
Each card is about 5.5 inches square and comes with a white envelope.
In order to qualify for the drawing, simply:

I’ll announce the winner on Friday, so you’ll have these puppies in plenty of time to mail them to your closest loved ones.
I love the kitsch of 1950’s retro. Just absolutely love it. Paper crafting is a way for me to enjoy ephemera in a whole new way – by taking the illustrations I love and making one-of-a-kind collage art from them.
Below are some of my recent creations. I have also included a free “Pressed for Time” pin-up image, which is a one-of-a-kind collage I made myself. Enjoy!
Like that last card? Here is the image I made using Photoshop. Feel free to save it and incorporate it in your own crafts.Be sure to check out my Etsy shop for lots more goodies. Thanks for supporting handmade!
