Star Studded Birthday

Hi Crafty friends, today’s quick card project I made for a male birthday. I started by dry embossing some colour core cardstock with a Happy Birthday embossing folder, sanded it with a fine grit sanding tool and distressed the outer edges with a paper distresser tool. I die cut out some stars in a variety of colours from some scraps with a set of star  – nested dies.

Next I stamped a cupcake from a figures of speech stamp set onto a small piece of white cardstock, coloured it with copic markers and cut it out with the inner star shape and mounted these together with 3D foam adhesive. The sentiment I stamped with black ink onto some white cardstock and dry embossed it with square lattice embossing folder and embellished this with three silver brads at the left side of the sentiment and also adhered this onto the card 3D foam adhesive.

With some sunshine out today, I spent the entire afternoon in the garden… gardening and found one of the re-potted orchids was in flower and a few succulents in flower too.
