Happy Father's Day from the Dark Side

Okay, I admit it, this Dark Vader Father's Day card came from more creative brains than mine.
I borrowed the sentiment from a really cool letterpress card by Amanda Wright.

The Darth Vader pop up on the inside is completely, utterly, Matthew Reinhart's.

The font on the front of the card is called StarVader.
I got the sparkly black paper at Joann Fabric and put a silver gel pen in my Craft Robo to draw our friend Darth. (Reinhart's template is already in vector format, so you can don't even need to trace it!) I hand cut around the drawn pieces and assembled it following the directions here.

I use the one that came with my machine--like this one:


but I sanded out the inside and the took off the tip with a dremel so bigger pens will fit inside the barrel.
