**** Birthday Blog Candy Information****
I know you're probably tired of seeing my use this orange Doodlebug cardstock, but today's card is the last of it for now. "Orange" you glad? *wink* Sorry, I couldn't resist... I do have a few more cards to share made with this paper, but haven't taken photos of them yet - so watch for them next week.
Anyway, here's another card based on my PaperCraftPlanet sketch for this week. You'll see that I took some liberties with it, but that's what sketches are for, right?
Using GinaK's 120lb. cardstock as the base, I embossed with the Swirls Cuttlebug embossing die and then trimmed off 1/4" so that the inside layer could peek out. The ribbon is some retired Stampin Up ribbon and the stars are Nestability dies. I cut the large orange star from DCWV paper which has a white core - so I sanded it lightly with my sanding block to highlight the edges.
EK Success' Flourish punch added a pop of color and swirls for the stars. I added a black Kaiser Kraft pearl to each of the swirl dots but it's a little hard to see in the photo. The sentiment from Rupa's Perfectly Polished set and is cut with a tag Nestability die.
Here's the inside view..
I cut a few more star nestability dies out of Doodlebug's specialty cardstock orange pack and a scrap piece of DCWV orange paper. You know how much I love using up my scraps! The sentiment is from Gina's Tag Lines stamp set and is cut with a nestability die too.
Have a great rest of your day!
