My Fiance's birthday is this weekend and I'm just in luck that Captain America Winter Soldier comes out this weekend, too! He loves superheroes even more than I do so the birthday date is all planned.
My son and I worked together on the cards, using circle punches and star punches to make the iconic shield.
I haven't always loved making my own cards, but when they are as simple as this it is great and you save yourself $4.00.
The second card I made was also simple and fast. I just cut different sized rectangles with my scraps from the shield and used another star. It looks a little like the old school Captain America costume.
If you have never tried card making before, I suggest you give it a go with simple shapes like these ones.
