Merry Star

Hello friends.  Welcome to my blog!


This week's Merry Monday challenge is hosted by Debbie.
I liked the rustic look of the inspiration photo.

After I stamped and heat embossed the star, I sprinkled some
Chunky Frantage and some sparkly Frantage too and heat set
from underneath.

The design piece sits on a mat of woodgrain paper and I used
the Linen Impression Plate from Papertrey ink on the card base.

The sentiment is heat embossed too.

I felt like it needed a little something so I pulled out my foil stickers
to add a little sparkle and bling.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Great job on using that Frantage! Mine always seems to go flying all over the room when I heat from underneath like that. Love your pretty card and the star is wonderful on the Kraft.

Now this is so rich and elegant. From the delicate and colourful foil stickers to the basic white on linen woodgrain card stock, this card gets that truly rustic feel you wanted. Bravo! xx

It's so funny that you used your linen IP, Bon-Bon. I was pulling out dies for my upcoming adventure and came across my IPs, which I haven't used in dog's years. The linen one was always my favorite! It looks splendid as a background to your gorgeous decorated star! It's a winner in my book!! Happy Mother's Day! Hugs, Dolly

Love all the special touches that give punch to the card...the chunky frantage, the two textured papers, and the bit of blink....while still keeping the simplicity of the rustic look.
