5uper Day

Bob's best friend turned 5 this week and, when I asked him what he'd like to put on the card he replied "Superman" without any hesitation. It seemed obvious to straighten out a couple of the lines in the "S" of the Superman logo to make a 5. Bob and I worked out the rest of the design together and, although the cutting and positioning was too precise for him to help with, he did draw around all the templates and chose the writing.

What we used:
Paper & Card: Papermania smooth yellow card, Papermania A6 card blank, glossy red paper
Tools & Colour: XCut All Aboard large luggage tags die set, Whispers black brush marker pen. 
Embellishments: Papermania foam Alphaminis "Yellow"

Crafting notes:
  • The buckle was a late change because a set of dies I bought arrived just in time and included a buckle die :-)
  • The cape is only attached at the top of the back of the card so that it sticks out a little
  • I found the original Superman logo on Pinterest
  • The foam letters are wonky on purpose :-)


  1. what a super idea :D

  2. What a clever idea for the number 5!

  3. Great card and love the use of the S for the 5.

  4. Brilliant card....great design....Joolsx
