Yoda Best - Letter Substitution card

I really enjoyed the series The Madalorian on disney, we actually got disney plus just to watch it! And I've watched it twice now, and enjoyed it each time. 

This card really make me think of the show, and it's a fun all occasions kind of card. Like the inside could be anything from "happy birthday" to "thank you" to "This is the way" or "I have spoken" (ha, ha - those are quotes from the show).  But I love all occasions cards, they tend to be the cards I grab most to use in actual life. 

I'm taking Spring Card Camp thru online card classes dot com and I thought this would be perfect for the "letter substitution day." So I know I needed to share. 

So, I made the card front 5" x 7" so it's a greeting card size & takes the a7 envelope size.  I used Close to My Heart's Aurora paper that has a bunch of different constellations on it for the background.  I sanded the edges of the paper after I adhered it to the card base so that it would have a little bit of a more weathered look to it. 

I used a star wars font and cut out the sentiment with my cricut and cut it out from CTMH's Silver Foil paper, and ran it through my cuttlebug with the Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Fade (the Foundry one, I know he says to run it thru at least three times, but I just do once, so that the pattern is a little more subtle.)

Using 3-D foam tape, I popped up the sentiment so that it feels away from the background paper.  I used Diamond stickles to accent the background paper, and while that was drying, I stamped and cut out "The Child."

For the O I used Kindred Stamps' Chickie Nuggies stamp and colored it in using several different Spectrum Noir Tri-color markers: 

I really like using the Tri-color markers, you'll see a section of my website all about coloring with them.  They make it easy to add shadowing and dimension to anything you stamp!
