Josh is 14!

Happy Birthday Joshua!

I really loved making this card, it is quite different to anything else I have made!

I started off using a blue 6 X 6 blank card.
I cut the film cell using my Silhouette (TM) Cameo machine and added some silver foiled paper to the back.

I made the box of popcorn using a template and cut it out of really bright dotty paper.

The popcorn itself was a little more of a labour of love as I punched flowers from card, cut the flowers in to more appropriate popcorn shapes and glued a few back to back with wire inside to add more dimension.

I then added a sentiment star, again using my Silhouette (TM) Cameo for both the sentiment and the star shape.

The tickets were a file that I had saved on my computer which I added "Admit One" to using, you've guessed it, my Silhouette (TM) Cameo machine!

I just hope that Josh will like it!
This card will journey from Wiltshire up to Carlisle so I am off to make a dimensional envelope to send it and keep it safe!!
