Spectacular Birthday

Our Luke celebrated his 5th birthday last week.  I had made him a paper pieced card but then decided to use the pattern I'd found for a Spider-man card.  He's crazy about Spider-man and all those Avengers.  He really liked this card and that made me happy!



Spider-man is copyrighted by MARVEL.  I found the pattern for him here.  Natasha did a wonderful job of using Stampin' Up! punches for him.  Her pattern was very easy to follow.

The spider web on the top was a lucky find from the clearance shelf at a local craft store.  When I asked how much it was, it rang up at 1¢.  It was my lucky day!  The spider web on the white is embossed with my Stampin' Up! folder.

I'll take this over to  Pixie's Playground, since I used only snippets for the design on this card.    It's a 5" x 7" card so the base wasn't a snippet but everything else was.

Seize the Birthday challenge this week is to make a masculine card using this sketch.


I'll be Lesley didn't envision Spider Man as any shape.  Hopefully they won't kick me out!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
