Starry Birthday

Sometimes you just need a simple card. I'm not good at simple cards, but this is one of my attempts. Stars are awesome, and unisex! So starts where just what was called for :) I made a stack of these with card bases and stars in the same colors as the ink I used for the stamps.


And my secret weapon for holding the pieces of string in place? Scotch tape on the back! I never actually wrap ribbon or string all the way around as it makes unsightly lumps in the layers.
  • Stamps: Curly Cute
  • Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse
  • Paper: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
  • Other: Large and Small Star punches (retired) and Merry Minis punch pack star punch, crochet thread, dimensionals, chocolate brown buttons, White Baker's Twine
And can you believe it?!  I resisted the urge to outline this card front! I don't know how...my fingers are kind of itching to fix that, lol!
