Shine Brightly

Hi star lovers! It’s Sally here with a couple of cards, including this quick ¬†irregular shaped card using our Big Star. I stamped the star in several colors, then trimmed. I thought it would be fun to use our pool card turned inside out, so a little of that color shows from the inside! You’re a Star makes a great greeting. If you want, add some gems or glitter to jazz it up!

Here’s another astrological birthday card… do any of our blog readers have a birthday today, April 24th? If so, this card’s for you! ;-) I used several stamps to make this collage-type card, including our fun new Astrology Signs set. In the background there’s an actual newspaper clipping with the Taurus horoscope! The “shine brightly” and “love” are from Written in the Stars - I really love the font in this new set!

    I love both of your colorful cards, Sally. I especially love the way you cut around the star on the first card to reveal the starry background!
