WOW, can't believe 2 weeks have passed already - this year feels like it is going to fly by. If you have landed on this post, you are either visiting my page of your own accord or have probably come from the incredibly talented Barbara Williams....so WELCOME to you all xxx
This week's sketch was quite simple for me. As soon as I saw the star, I knew I was going to be creating a boys birthday card. Stars just go with boys, like flowers go with girls :) Having 2 boys, I quite often use stars as embellishments on cards and scrapbook layouts of them.
A very simple card from me this week, as I have been sick and not really up to stamping. I began by selecting some patterned paper and then chose my coordinating background colour. You definitely can't go wrong with blue for boys :)
I decided to cut my star using the big shot star framelit dies, but then decided it looked a bit plain - so cut out a film strip using the big shot on film framelit dies.
Personally I think that anything layered always adds punch to a card.
I added a few smaller stars to the bottom and then used a button and linen thread to add a bit of character to the card.
A simple Happy Birthday greeting raised up gives the card a bit of dimension, along with the raised small stars.
I hope you get some inspiration from this card, sometimes its the simplicity of a card that make it effective. Please be sure to leave a comment, we all love comments :). Feel free to share any creations that you make using this sketch, I love seeing what others come up with. Now its time to continue along the blog hop by visiting Kabrina Piirlaids blog.
Happy Blog Hopping :)
