Make a Wish

Hello, it's Connie here with you today, sharing a starry night birthday wishes card.

I wish I had a stamp that said Wish upon a Star, I think that would have went better with this, and after I had the card all done I thought I could have done a sentiment on my computer for it, but there is always next time, right :)

My background was done using the Memory Box, Starry night background die.  I cut it out twice, once in the blue and then again using DCWV Foil paper in silver, so that I could inlay them in the stars that pop out.  Next I cut out the Impression Obsessions, City Landscape layer dies there are two dies in the set, one I cut from a gray that had a texture look to it and then the background one I cut from black cardstock.

Here is a close up picture of the background.  I love how it cuts and embosses so you get cut outs of the stars and also embossed stars.

Instead of adding back in all those tiny dots that cut out I added Diamond Stickles in those holes to give it more shimmer.  Lastly I added the sentiment stamp from Gina Marie stamps, Birthday words stamp set.

Here are the dies used in this card (links above in the description)

  3. Fabulous creation Connie! Thanks for sharing how awesome this background die is to use. I have it in my stash but hadn't used it yet ... (guess what I'm creating with today! LOL) Great job!

  4. Beautiful starry background and I adore that cityscape! This is awesome!!!

  5. I had been looking for a city scape die and this one looks great -- you get two in the set; that makes the work so much easier. I also love that star background. Thank you for sharing these dies. It's always nice seeing the dies in use and how they look IRL. Great card!
