Bad Ass Birthday Card

I made the coolest card today!!
Daryl Dixon, from "The Walking Dead," one of the biggest badasses on the show!

The card base and Daryl are from SVG Cutting Files.  The card base is called Wave Card Base.  I cut it so that, when folded, it is about 4 1/8"x5 1/2."  I inked around the edges of the card base with tea dye Distress Ink.  The strips were cut using a rectangle in Cricut Design Space.  I stretched it to be slightly longer than the card base, then cut it to follow the curve.  I distressed the edges of the blue strip and inked the edges of the white strip with tea dye Distress Ink.

Daryl is also from SVG Cutting Files.  He is a cut file you can get if you are a member of the SVG Cutting Files Galleria on Facebook.  I cut him at about 3 3/8" tall.  I used the offset feature in Silhouette to create a shadow, the offset was .15."  I distressed his jeans and the shirt.  I also added a little white ink around the vest.  I also used a white gel pen to add some detail to his eyes.  Finally, I strung the crossbow using some black thread.

The sentiments are from Jaded Blossom.  The "happy birthday" is from So Many Birthdays and "bad ass" is from Sassy Pants.
