It's Your Day

I was looking for inspiration to make a birthday card for my husband when I remembered Sketch Girls sketch that I have been wanting to try. It was a perfect fit for the stamps I wanted to use. I started with Kraft cardstock and stamped the swirl stamp in Versamark ink. I also stamped stars with a glue pad and added glitter but it doesn't show very well in this photo. I embossed the square panels with the stars cuttlbug folder and added Crystal Stickles to the edges. I cut the stars with the Cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge at 3" & 3 1/4" for the large star, 2" & 2 1/4" for the medium star and 1 1/4" & 1 1/2" for the small star. I cut the border from Enchanted Evening cardstock using the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch and then trimmed it. I stamped the little star flourish from Faux Ribbon in Enchanted Evening. I used several stamp sets on this card and I will list them all in the supply list below.

Thanks for stopping by!
