It’s been a while since my last ‘Card of the Week’ post. So I thought I’d take some time to create something cute and sweet—just for fun. I used my puffy star shaped dies, by Lawn Fawn, to create this star shaped card. I got the idea of making cards in a variety of fun shapes and sizes from Kelly Marie, over at LF. I think this card came out so cute. I never even thought of using different shapes for cards—I was always using the traditional A2 size. I've never even made a 5X7 card! I need to make one of those soon, too. If you’d like to know more about making star cards, or other shapes, check out this video with the detailed instructions showing how you can make your very own: click here.
Here are a few shots of the stamp sets I’ve used to create this card. For the ‘Thank you’ text bubble I’m using this stamp set (click here), and for the botanicals lion, banner, and sentiment, I’m using the following sets: (Click, here, here, here, and here). You can also see how I sneaked the gelly pen into the shot, hehe. This is the pen I used to create the faux stitching around the edges—I love it—especially on Kraft card stock.
I’m also using the Dewey Decimal petite paper pack and I just love the designs in this pack—You can see a sample of how awesome this paper is be checking out the background on this card I made. So cute right?
In order to get the 3D effect, I used some dimension adhesive as shown in the image. I love use these when creating cards. I think it adds so much, and really looks like a lot of work was put into a creation.
I really love this card, and I’m even thinking about all the different shapes I can make. What I love most about the LF dies is that the biggest die is the perfect size for an A2 envelope—so I don’t have to worry about finding any specific envelope. Love it! Let me know what you think of it in the comments. I can’t wait to give this card out. I wish someone would send me cards like this, lol.
