Even from the design of the badge straight through to my card, these colors just said STARS! I am holding onto my favorite SU star set, Be the Star, even though it's retired and used it for my card today:
Oh my, I had fun making this card! It will go to one of our nephews who celebrates a birthday close to July 4th but more than that, he loves primary colors. I heat embossed some silver splotches in the background with Gorgeous Grunge and then layered my stars on top. If you look closely, you can see a small vellum star in the background that's been heat emobssed with white on vellum. So pretty!
I want to give you a close-up to see the sentiment. It's a [retired] wooden accent but I inked it up with Versamark and poured silver embossing powder on it. Heat it up and look at that texture! Isn't it cool? I wasn't sure how the wood would handle the heat from the heat tool but it was just fine. I did keep the heat moving across so I think that helped. A little silver thread looped behind tied all the silver accents together.
I had a couple vellum stars left over that I used on the inside with a fun sentiment to finish off this birthday card. Maybe just a little glitzy for a boy but I think the primary colors keep it a bit more masculine and totes okay for a teenage boy!
I know the rest of the design team have some totes adorbs projects for you to gaze upon--please chek them out! Then consider playing along with us before the challenge closes on Friday, June 17th at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by, friends!
