So I needed to rustle up a quick card for a male friend’s birthday later this week. It needed to be so simple that its making didn’t alert Mr Beez to the fact that I had taken
another a break from my major clearing up exercise. It also need to be slim enough to avoid any Post Office shenanigans as my local one still operates the dark ages policy of half-day closing (I know!!!). Ideally I wanted it to provide my entry for this week’s Sunday Stampers challenge, which has a books theme, and give me an excuse to play with my new Distress Inks – Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio.
Yep, I think this ticks all the boxes! I used the Primitive Stars Alterations die to cut the stars from book pages. I inked the largest star with my new inks – I love these two colours and love them even more together. I used a white gel pan to add some detail and black pen to add detail to the un-inked star.
I used the same inks to stamp the diagonal lines – a stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge set , then layered on the book page stars before topping it all off with a small gold foil star.
I love it when a plan comes together!
Thanks for buzzing by.
