I make dozens of cards and put together dozens and dozens of treats for the kids and their friends every Valentine's day and yet I face the same problem every year. I can make lots of cards but I can't come up with one that I like enough to give to Hubby.
Hubby is the typical geek. He is into computers and gadgets and the latest technology. Even though he always gives his compliments every time I show him a new card, I don't think he is really into that kind of cutesy stuff that I make.
And then I came across the Pixel Invaders.
I was thrilled when I saw it. I downloaded it right away and knew I had to use it to make something for him.
Hubby has a Space Invaders t-shirt that he loves and with that in mind, I came up with this card:
Using Make-the-Cut and my Silhouette Cameo, I print-and-cut the card out. It's my first print-and-cut project with the MTC-Cameo plug in and I was pleased that it worked perfectly! The space invaders were printed and the card base was cut by the Cameo. I layered the heart onto the base with foam tape. The inside sentiment was also printed using Make-the-Cut and the font that I used can be found HERE.
Valentine's Day is less than a month away and I can't wait to give this card to him. No, seriously, I couldn't wait. I gave it to him as soon as I finished it and for once, I didn't doubt him when he said, "This is a great card!".
