Take That!!!!

Welcome!  I'd like to share a card with you today, that I made for a really special guy.  My lovely niece, Nicole has a wonderful fiance, Dave.  He was diagnosed not too long ago with brain cancer for the second time and has been undergoing quite a lot of therapy to be rid of it.  He's gonna beat this thing!!! I saw a card that was sent to a blogger friend, Monique, (she is fighting breast cancer) that gave me this idea. 

In his own words, Dave is a dork where it comes to comic books.  He loves them and when I saw the card that Monique had recieved similar to this one, I knew I had to make one for Dave. 
To make it, I found a Superman symbol and printed it out to make a template. I traced the template onto red card stock,  then cut it out and layered it onto yellow card stock.  This, I adhered to blue card stock which was then adhered to a Kraft colored A-2 sized card that I folded to make an easel card.

I hand wrote the ZAP and colored it in with a black Zig pen, I used red and blue to outline the 'starburst'.  Once it was cut and adhered to the blue and red card stock I used foam adhesive to place it on the card. 

I printed the 'sentiment' from the computer onto white card stock. I also added a piece of white card stock to the inside of the card to write my own sentiment.

I hope Dave enjoys this card as much as I enjoyed making it for him.  I just wanted him to know I'm thinking about him and I know he is kicking cancer's butt.  To me he is a real Superman!  He is fighting a very tough fight and is going to win!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Leave me a comment if you wish.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
