You are My S.H.I.E.L.D.

"What Does S.H.I.E.L.D. stand for, Agent Ward?"

"Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division."

"And what does that mean to you?"

"It means someone really wanted our initials to spell out 'Shield'."

Yes, folks, the fall television lineup is BACK, and Agents of Shield just so happens to be one of my absolute FAVORITES, so, I thought it would be fun to create a card inspired by the show. 'Cause that's how I roll, my friends. That. Is how I roll.

To create the SHIELD logo in the background, I sketched it out and then hand cut it. Yup. No machine involved. You could probably easily create a cut file, but sometimes I just like to kick it old school. Plus, when I made this card I didn't actually own a machine that could do that. LOL! The 'you' is a Simon Says Stamp die and then the letters are cut using Lawn Fawn Cole's ABC's dies. I love that alphabet die set! It's a great font and super easy to use! I cut each letter in both black and grey and then layered them so it would have a nice shadow effect that allows the letters to truly stand out.

You are my Shield (detail)


The letters are popped up for dimension, too. I used a bit of Wedding Dress ink around the edges to give the card a bit more depth and interest. I think that finishes it out nicely. This card was SUPER TONS of fun to create!!!

Have a Happy!

  1. Awesome and amazing job designing and cutting! I love your quote from the show, making me laugh! Gotta love shows that make fun of themselves! My kids are highly addicted to everything in the Marvel Universe and I even got sucked into Tuesday night's episode (I enjoy the movies, I just don't take the time to watch the weekly series - until now, perhaps, LOL!)

    TFS!

  3. This is epic, as in "I freaked out when I saw it on IG this morning" epic. Like one of the most coolest cards. EVER. OH my goodness. Yes. Oh wow. I am soooo loving it! :D
    (And I love AOS too...super excited that season 2 started back up! Hoping that they will throw in some other Marvel characters during the season...like I wouldn't mind seeing Crossbones/Rumlow in an episode and maybe Sharon Carter/Agent 13) Anyhoo...just totally love this! <3
