Hey there! Happy weekend everyone! I’m up on the Scrapbookpal.com blog today with this awesome set of cards today that were inspired by my friend, Jenn Bena’s, video a couple weeks ago. Hers were uber fabulous and although I don’t have all the same goodies she does, I dug in my stash and found some fun things to use instead.
To make these cards I started with a ton of die cutting. Here’s a list to get you going:
- From the largest of the puffy stars
- 4 black stars
- 2 white stars
- 2 iridescent vellum stars
- 4 white stars folded in half for the card base – crease line about 3/4 inch below the cut line
- Take your white and vellum stars and use the puffy cloud borders to cut your clouds. You can get 2 from each star.
From here I actually adhered everything together then took the stars from Upon a Star and heat embossed them in the sky with silver embossing powder. This looked a little plain so I created a cloud mask and splattered the sky with gold and pearl watercolors. I love this now!!!
I stamped, colored and die cut the small fox and bunny from Upon a Star and popped them up with foam tape on the cloudy ground. Last, I pulled out my Lucky Stars sentiments and stamped them on two cards. Then for the other two I split the sentiments from Upon a Star part on the front and the large word inside the cards.
These cards fit in a standard A2 size envelope and mail with a regular stamp. But how much fun would it be to received these fun shaped cards! Such a small change makes a huge impact on your card.
Do you make shaped cards? Share in the comments. I’d love to know.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day.
