Masculine Starry Birthday

Thursday, February 20, 2014

There was an interesting technique challenge over at Splitcoast earlier this week and I wanted to play with it today.

The star dies were placed on my card and then I used a white gel pen to trace around them.  Then, the dies were taped in place with some washi tape while I ran it through my Big Shot Pro.  Next, I just added some designer paper popped up on dimensionals behind the cut out stars.  Instant interest around your die cuts...cute idea hmmm?  There's a link below to the challenge.

A little die cut sentiment, some hemp twine, a button, some scoring in the corner and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Basic Grey, SU! designer paper (old), Gina K. pure luxury white
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps:  Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Clearly Besotted Superstar Die collection, MFT button, multi-colored hemp twine, Scor-Pal, white gel pen, dimensionals
