Happy Birthday is Written in the Stars

When I saw the name of this cute image from La-La Land Crafts “Shining Star Marci” I knew I wanted to use stars for the card design.

I pulled out my largest star die and die cut it from gold mirror cardstock. I wanted the Marci image to be sitting on a star.

This is a digital stamp and so I printed it using a laser printer so that I would bleed when colored with Copic Markers. The color scheme was determined by the recipient’s favorite colors.Once coloring was complete I used my Silhouette PIXScan Mat to cut around the image.

I pulled out My Favorite Things Written in the Stars and die cut the word from Neena Classic Crest and from Darcie Sticky Back Foam. I used my Copic Markers to give an ombre affect to the “Stars” die cut. For the secondary sentiment I used the Copic Markers to color some leftover cardstock to match and stamped the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detailed White Embossing Powder.

For additional interest on the card I die cut a rectangle from white cardstock with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and then embossed the Memeory Box Starry Night Background Die.

I placed all the elements on the card the way I liked them and adhered them using liquid glue. I felt it needed a little something extra. The Marci image has her hand out as if she is holding something so I die cut a small heart from mirror cardstock and placed it in her add. I also covered the star at the end of her headband with a gold mirror die cut star as well.
