Star-Studded Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! Hope you're having an amazing weekend! I'm happy to share a relatively clean and simple birthday card I created a couple days ago to enter into a few challenges. This one's purely for play and not a design team project. I haven't done that in a while. :)

I randomly stamped the stars in Versamark and embossed them in gold, and affixed a red gemstone in the center of each one. I also embossed the sentiment in gold and added some gorgeous red sparkly ribbon just above the sentiment.

I adhered the background piece to a piece of white fun foam and then matted it on red cardstock. I found a gold star border peel-off in my stash and lined it up in the center of the ribbon for a little interest.

I kept the inside simple like I usually do, just stamping the sentiment on a panel matted on the red cardstock. That's it - simple and fun! My kind of project! ;)

Happy to enter this birthday card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock; Cricut Reds cardstock
  • Stamps: GKD Lots of Lines
  • Ink: Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories: Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, Fun Foam, Really Reasonable Ribbon - Rustic Hues from the November Ribbon Club Assortment; Dazzles gold start border peel-off, red gemstones

That's it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by - we'll see you next time! ;)
