Today's your day to shine...

Today is my grandson Sebastian's 12th birthday.

Happy Birthday, Sebastian!

Here's the card I made for him with my Silhouette Cameo:

I used various star dies to cut out some glittery stars for the front of my card. My sentiment is computer-generated, and I added some sparkle to the word "shine" with a clear Wink of Stella pen.

Here you can see the glitter a little better, and you can also see how I have popped up the star for some added dimension.

The inside of my card is the real "star." This is Design #65331 in the Silhouette Design Store. To make the pop-out just a little different, I added some tape behind each letter cut-out and then burnished some clear glitter onto the front.

Here you can see the glittery letters a little better. The light is still able to shine through them, but they looked nicely finished using this technique. Love how this turned out!

I know that I will use this pop-out many times. It takes a little patience to get it all folded correctly, but it's so worth it. I sure hope Sebastian likes it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

You are so talented on your silhouette - what a great birthday card for a 12 year old - I know he is going to love it. Lots of glitters but still totally masculine. Great job.

Oh wow, that's so cool Cheryl!! LOVE your sparkly lettering on the inside! I would say your grandson will love it ... but if he's anything like my nephew he'll be more interested in the cash enclosure ;)

Wow yes!!! It's fab on the outside, and then the inside... even more so!
I have never tried this before... you inspired me!
