Make it Monday #63 - Die Cuts with Glitter


Heeeyyy - long time no see, lol.

Life always seems to get in the way, and I just never get around to posting.  I had to make a couple of birthday cards today, and one of them just happened to fit the current Make-it-Monday challenge, on Nichole Heady's blog, so I actually took a picture of my card, and here I am! :)


This was for one of my favorite little guys, who just turned 4.  I know glitter isn't usually a 'guy' thing, but I used very manly colors, so I thought it was ok ;).

I stamped LOTS of stars from Star Prints and Super Stars for the background on base layer in Fresh Snow and Classic Kraft ink.  The sentiment is from Birthday Bash Sentiments.  Then I die cut my stars (Spellbinders Nestability Stars) from Enchanted Evening, Orange Zest and Simply Chartreuse CS.  Put them through the ol' Xyron, and covered them in coordinating Martha Stewart Glitters...well, except the blue.  That one I used a lighter blue glitter, and then used a navy blue copic, and airbrushed it darker.  All in all, a fun card for a fun little boy.

Thanks for popping by -- Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Supplies:
Stamps: Star Prints, Super Stars, Birthday Bash Sentiments
Ink: Fresh Snow, Classic Kraft
Paper: Classic Kraft, Enchanted Evening, Orange Zest, Simply Chartreuse
Accessories: Martha Stewart Glitter, dimensionals (SU!)

I think any four year old would like this card...the stars are shiny and bright (and like you said, "manly")...I like the lay out, I think I will "cas" this card if you don't mind! Good job on the challenge!
