May the Forest Be With You - SugarPea Designs Super Guest Designer #10

I love lots of things about card making; colouring, patterned paper and a punny sentiment. This card has it all. This set, Easily A'Moose'd, was on my wish list for a long time, and I got the Happy Camper paper pad to go with it.

Hubby and I are both big Star Wars fans (read the books and watch the cartoons type of serious fan!), so with our wedding anniversary coming up, this was perfect.

The paper pad has fabulous patterned paper in it and the night sky was perfect, but I didn't just want the whole background to be sky, so I struck upon the idea of using the camp scene, and cutting out the white checked inner to use the outside as a frame. I used a craft knife and a steel ruler (stolen from my husband's model railway hobby!) and then a very steady hand for the intricate little bits.

After attaching the night sky to my card blank, I attached some thin foam strips to the back of the camp scene frame and with my best effort managed to attach it to the card blank straight.

I attached some foam pads to the back of the little moose which I'd coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. I also coloured and fussy cut the marshmallow on the stick and attached it with some glue to the moose's hand - I think of it like a light saber..... As the paper is slightly shiny, I stamped the sentiment with some Stazon ink.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today, and May the Forest Be With You To!

When I first saw this card on IG I had no idea the camp scene was PP. i think this card came together beautifully! Perfect sentiment, adorable scene and I laughed my head off at the marshmallow on a stick being his little light sabre! Genius!!! I think it’s really creative Ruth and I bet Mat loved it. I would!
