So I’m one of the biggest fans of My Favorite Things Die-Namics.  I think they have some of the most innovative and creative die designs and I love working with them.  When I saw the Stitched Triple Peek-a-Boo Window and Edge Dies, I just knew they would be perfect for a night sky.  When my grandson was here for Thanksgiving, one of our favorite things to do together was to go outside and look at the stars with the Star Chart app on my phone.  It’s so fascinating and he loved it.  So, that’s what inspired this card.  Here’s how I made it:

 

  1. Trim an A2, vertical top-folding card base from Smooth White Card Stock.  Score at 5.5”, fold in half and perfect the crease with a Teflon Bone Folder.
  2. In order to keep the back of the card base clean, adhere some Post-It Tape to the back of the base at the top of the fold.
  3. Splatter the inked card base with some white shimmer watercolor paint.  Spray the card base with some shimmer spray.
  4. Trim an A2 panel from Smooth White Card Stock.  Die cut the panel using the Stitched Triple Peek-a-Boo Window & Edge Die-Namics.
  5. Stamp the moon and stars images from the Somebunny I Love Stamp Set onto the card base using Silver Delicata Pigment Ink, making sure to place the moon and hanging star image in the area  of the right circle.
  6. Adhere the white die cut panel to the card base with foam tape.
  7. Die cut the moon and star from Silver Sparkle Card Stock using the Somebunny I Love Die-Namics.  Adhere it to the card base with foam tape.
  8. Stamp the sentiment from the Somebunny I Love Stamp Set onto some Black Licorice Card Stock using Silver Delicata Pigment Ink.  Heat emboss it with Clear Detail Embossing Powder.  Die cut the sentiment using the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-Namics.
  9. Adhere the sentiment strip to the card base with foam tape.

 

I just love how those circles look like windows into the constellations.  This card would be perfect for a graduate or someone who just got a new job!  I’ve listed all of the products that I used below.  And all of the New Products are available now!
