If you are looking for my Canada Day card, created for this week's Fantabulous Cricut challenge, please click HERE.
The challenge this week at My Craft Spot is "Seeing Stars" - use stars on your project. I decided to make a card for one of my own stars - my middle guy who will be turning 14 (yikes!) in August.
I fell in love with the design of a card made with Birthday Bash - but I don't have that cartridge. However, with the help of my Gypsy, I was able to create something fairly close. I used a cup from Locker Talk (received from my wonderful friends at Serenity Scrappers) and turned it sideways. I then welded a star from George and Basic Shapes to the cup. Next, I copied the image, flipped it and welded the two together to create a card. I used the same cartridges to cut the patterned papers that I used as well. The 14 and shadow were cut with Kate's ABCs and run through the Cuttlebug using a star embossing folder. The star and 14 are popped. The little tag was hand-cut and stamped with a birthday sentiment from My Craft Spot's Sweet Sentiments Set #1. I did lots of faux stitching and finished things off with a star brad and some Chocolate Baker's Twine from My Craft Spot.
Please head over to My Craft Spot to see the amazing projects created by the rest of the design team - and then create your own "Seeing Stars" project! I'd love to see what you make!
*Don't forget about the Canada Day Blog Hop this Friday! Everybody is invited to join the fun!
**My card also meets the criteria for the Stars and Stripes birthday card challenge at Birthday Sundaes - so I will enter it there as well!
