Happy Friday! This week as flown by and I can hardly believe the weekend is here. I have been helping my neighbor's daughter with her wedding planning. We finished 158 wedding favors yesterday (you can see them here) - needless to say, I've been swamped this week!
But I did have a few minutes to make 2 cards for this week's challenge over TGIF Challenges!
This is a fairly simple sketch. Will you join us?
I am highlighting a new bundle from the upcoming SU! Holiday Catalog. The star thinlits are so intricate and beautiful and the sentiments from the set are just lovely. I can't wait to make some more cards with this set.
When I saw this week's sketch I knew I wanted to use this cluster of small stars across the card front. Looks like the Milky Way to me. I embossed both to give the card some detail and dimension.
The first card I made uses 2 of the thinlits - one solid, one intricate. I wanted to make a 3D star with the vellum star - I've seen them before but never really tried one.
You might think that the foil here is gold, but it's actually copper! Another great product coming out in the new catalog - matches the Copper Emboss Powder perfectly! :)
Here's a different angle for the vellum star. I adhered it to the card base by using one dimensional in the middle. I knew it was getting covered up by the copper star, so I didn't mind that I'd see it at first.
The second card I made is sort of flip-flopped. I wanted to see if I liked a blue based card better and... I don't, hah! But, I still do like it. I just think the white one is nicer, that's all. :)
I do love this Copper Foil sheets and I'm so glad I saw it the second time through the catalog!
I hope you like them both!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have time this week to play along with our challenge at TGIF Challenges! Have a great weekend!
