When I saw a star shaped shaker card made by Mary Brown I knew I had to adapt it for my grandson’s 6th birthday.  He’s a lego and Spider Man mega aficionado.  Here’s Zion’s Spiderman card.  I think he’s going to love it.

Zion’s 6th birthday card


  • Night of Navy – 5″ x 8″ folded, cut using largest Star Framelit.  This will allow it to have a folded piece

Position upper ‘star point’ just above folded card stock

  • Night of Navy – 5″ x 5″, cut using largest Star Framelit, add to front of Night of Navy base so that the front is a full star.
  • Real Red – 4″ x 4″, cut out using the 2nd and 3rd largest Star Framelits nested inside each other creating a frame

Position the smaller framelit inside the larger one, trying to make all spaces equal.

  • Window Sheet – 4″ x 4″, cut out using 2nd to largest star and attach behind frame.  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals around the back side of the frame on the Window Sheet to hold the confetti pieces in place.
  • Punch out Night of Navy, Real Red and Gold Foil stars using the Star Border Punch.  Add to the center of card base then set the star frame/window sheet on top of them.  From experience:  less confetti is more!  Too many pieces and they’ll all just remain in a pile.

I found some Spider Man images on the web, captured one, placed it on a Pages (Word) document and shrunk it down by grabbing a corner and making the image smaller.  Print, layer onto another piece of card stock, cut out and finally attach it to the card front.

After the balloon is in place, carefully coat it with Crystal Effects for a shiny look.

Crystal Effects on balloon

Carefully spread Crystal Effects on the balloon. Set aside to dry for at least 1/2 hour, perhaps longer.

Place individual alphabet letters on table

Position individual alphabet letters on table for alignment and to ensure that the name will stamp properly

position clear block over letters

Position clear block over letters and press gently to secure clear mount letters to block. Ink up and stamp on envelope.

TIP:  Make your envelope using Stampin’ Up!’s Envelope Punch Board.  The star points were 5″ apart at the widest points so I looked for a 5″ x 5″ envelope size.  Cut card stock to an 8-1/8″ square and proceed per Punch Board instructions.
