This is the very first card I made when I got my January Design Team kit from Verve...I love this card. I had just gotten the large star punch from Stampin Up, and I wanted to see how it fit with the stars in the sets so I could tell all you lovely people!
I love this Crate paper that Julee sent...I just love the texture of it. I really love patterned paper (who doesn't), but I especially enjoy patterned paper that is watercolor texture. It makes me happy.
See how the star is layered with just a tiny mat? It was so super easy! I punched the striped star out of the Crate paper with the Large Star Punch from SU. The Chocolate Chip piece behind it is actually the largest star from Polka Stars. I cut it out (by hand but it was easy) and found that it was a perfect 1/16" mat for the punched star. Cool huh? Then I made it a button by punching 2 little holes and tying a ribbon through.
I loved that this card turned out rather gender neutral. Wouldn't it make such a fabulous graduation card? I thought so anyway. *grin*
I hope you're having a fabulous Friday! Stay tuned for a Sketch for you to Try tomorrow!
