Card Making Challenge - Paper Crafting Alphabet - Add A Touch Of Gold
I have a card today! Yay! :)
This card is the next in the card making challenge I've been working on. I wanted to make a congratulations card for a friend who reached a huge milestone, and I just love the Lawn Fawn Upon A Star stamp set a friend recently gave me. I thought the set would be perfect for this card.
The stamp set comes with little constellations you can stamp but I opted to use a background paper from one of my 12x12 paper stacks from Heidi Swapp, the September Skies pack.
I stamped the fox and bunny with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with some of my Copic markers. Then I used the matching dies for the Upon A Star stamp set and cut them out. I used the My Favorite Things Stitched Snowdrifts die set to make the hillside on the bottom of the card.
For the sentiment and part of my "touch of gold" in the challenge, I stamped 'You're A Star' with Versamark and then used Stampin' Up! gold embossing powder. I used a white Gelly Roll pen to outline the 'star' for a little something extra.
I popped up the critters with foam adhesive, and to finish off the card, I added some gold star sequins I have in my stash. That makes me happy because I have SO many sequins, so any opportunity to use some is a big bonus in my book.
I love how this card turned out and I hope my friend does too! :)
