My Mr.Incredible Birthday Card

Hello and happy weekend! Yesterday we celebrated my hubbies birthday. He has been doing an amazing job with his fitness routine. He says he's feeling better and more fit than ever before. I wanted to make him a card and birthday theme to represent his hard work. Here's my project!

We are huge Disney fans in my house and I thought what would be 
better for hubby than Mr.Incredible! 

I used my Cricut Disney's Best of Pixar and the CTMH Artiste cartridges. I made a large Card in the box and of course cut out Mr.Incredible as the main feature. The starbursts and words "pow" and "zap" are all cut from Best of Pixar as well as the "i" symbol. The gable box is from Artiste.

The sparkly gold star cardstock is from the DCWV Edumacation stack. The black and gray cardstock is from a Darice Black and White paper pack. I used Creative Memories mini alphabet stickers for the title. 

The stamps are from My Craft Spot "Build a Birthday." I LOVE this stamp set! So many possibilities! I then added some black rhinestones to give it a little extra but not too much bling. Masculine cards are extra challenging because you can't put too many embellishments or you risk making it too feminine.

The gable box was cut at fit to page to be as large as I could make it.  I added some Wink of Stella clear pen to the icon to give it an extra shimmer. I filled the boxes with candy to give to my hubby and kids. They were a hit!

I hope you liked my project for today! I will participate in the following challenges:

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!
