Superhero Cards

We were very blessed to have our eight year old nephew visiting us from Red Deer.  He and his mom have been coming every summer for years, but this year, he got to spend five days alone with us while his mom went to San Francisco.  We had a great time together.

Jacob likes to make cards with me.  Last year, we created this Superman card, which I guess I didn't take a picture of.. it looked very similar to these cards - a clean and simple layout of a blue card with a red and yellow Superman logo.  He is still into superheros so when we went to the movies together, I saw the advertisment for the Captain America movie and knew that we could easily create his log using my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot software.  One card wasn't enough for him, so we went searching for easy superhero logos to create.  We made the Green Lanter logo using rectangles and circles from SCAL and then we found the Batman logo svg on Annel's blog.    He was so thrilled that he declared that he wanted a Cricut for his birthday.  I knew his mom would love to get him one because she is a wonderful crafter... but alas, Jacob declared that if he got one he was going to keep it in his room!

I'm going to search for more simple superhero logos to cut with the Cricut and then send him the parts so he can assemble some cards at home.  If you know of any great svgs, or have an idea, let me know!

Thanks for looking,
