A Star, A Star.....

Today's Limited Supply challenge was to use a star on your card.....limit your layers......and you could only embellish with ribbon.....not so bad no?

I used the star from Waltzingmouse Stamps set, Seasons of Love and stamped it in Versamark Dazzle, onto Gina K Designs Pure Luxury white cardstock. Can I just take a minute and say how beautiful and smooth and THICK this paper is - my word......I never knew......it's gorgeous!




I embossed with detailed gold embossing powder - sorry the label is pure worn off of it, it's been rolling around in that drawer for so long! and then cut it out with the Spellbinders Star nestabilties.

The back panel
was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder and then everything was backed onto Flourishes Metallic gold leaf cardstock that I bought a couple of years ago and then just found when I was cleaning my scrap room!!

YES I actually cleaned it!!
I thought my daughter was going to fall over dead when she walked in lol!

Marcie is always the one who is at me to clean it up, keep it clean, OR she just comes over and licks everything so that I will let her throw it away - I destest tossing anything but if she licks it....well suffice to say, it's gone lol!


So my new mantra is put it away put it away put it away put it away.......

  2. I love the combination of textures - the dry embossed dots, the shiny metal embossing on the star, the luster of the satin ribbon! Beautiful combination!
