Yoda Star Wars Birthday

  Because you can't make one kid an R2D2 birthday card and not do a Star Wars birthday card for the other kid 4 days later so now we have Yoda for Ryan's birthday.

  After scouring Pinterest and Google for ideas I got to work and came up with this Yoda.

  The head is sponged and the top half embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder. The eyes are made from the Owl Punch and the ears are from the Bird punch.

  Yoda's body is an oval cut from Soft Suede and then topped with a Naturals Ivory robe made from an Apothecary Accent framelit shape.  I cut and layered the framelit over the oval.

  His hands and feet are from the Bitty Butterfly punch that are trimmed down.  The cane is hand cut from Early Espresso cardstock.

  The light saber was fun to make.  I used the Word Window punch for the blade and hilt.  The blade is Wild Wasabi and then I covered it with Crystal Effects and sprinkles Dazzling Diamonds over the Crystal Effects for a nice shimmery effect.  I added a Very Vanilla candy dot to the hilt for a finishing touch.

  Yoda is adhered onto a Soft Suede card base that was stamped with Gorgeous Grunge.

  On the inside I printed on the printer a Yoda quote about being 900 years old.  I thought it was fitting to go with the birthday theme.

 I got some props from Ryan on this card though he did have some suggestions to make Yoda's robe better...9 year old know it all!  LOL!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
