We all live in a yellow submarine...

I'm a star! Well, not really but I have my head dubbed over Ringo Starr's head on a video and I feel like a star. This video is for Nurses' Day (May 6) and was taped this last month. I hope to be able to share it with you soon.  But that brings me to this card... the song we lip-sync'd to (different lyrics of course) was "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by the Beatles. The Beatles...Yellow Submarine...and I needed a Thank-You card for the videographer. So of course, it had to be the yellow sub from the Seven Seas graphic set at LD.

I designed and printed this card in Silhouette Studio, and designed the envie in MTC. Because I will hand deliver the envie, I could decorate the front of it as well.  The picture above shows the back flap. Here is the front of the envie:

I brought the image into Silhouette Studio, shadowed it at 0.125 for the blue, then again at about 0.150 for the base. I duplicated the bigger shadow, flipped it horizontally and welded it to the other for a base. The submarine is popped-up on the front. The saying goes on the left inside, with the remainder of the card left for signatures. The screen looked like this when I was ready to print and cut:

Here is the screen shot from MTC for the envie before printing:
I used the font "Yellow Submarine", free from dafont. It unzips to be called Beatles.

Hope you enjoy this card! I love the bright colors and retro feel of it. If you don't already have it, you can grab this set for $1 (or the SVG for $2) while they are on sale - only 1 more day left!
