BIrthday Star


This is the second card I made for my eldest son's best friend who was seventeen recently, I always make a couple so that Matt has a choice.  This is the card that he actually chose to give his friend.


The papers are from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up collection, I cut the larger stars with an X-cut die and the smaller ones are an X-cut punch, I then inked the edges of the larger ones with distress inks and added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the smaller ones. I hand cut the sentiment banner and the sentiment is a Studio Light stamp embossed with white embossing powder.


I also decorated the inside of the card with stars.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge 9 - Boys Only
Paper Playtime Challenge 18 - Use 3 Different Papers
