One of my high school teachers turns 85 next week. A bunch of his former students are surprising him with a flurry of cards. Besides teaching math, he was also a magician. Each week after most of our classwork was done, he'd give his class a mini magic show. So I made a birthday card with a magical theme.
I used card stock, the inside of a security envelope, some sparkly felt for the silhouette, and some star "gems" for the cover.
On the inside, I used more felt for the hat, and shiny star stickers for the "pow!"
Best, I got it in the mail on time!
