Strong & Beautiful Starry Congratulations Card

by Joanne James20. October 2020 19:25

Today I'm sharing a card that is based on the current Fab Friday Challenge sketch, which I love:

 

I decided it would be the perfect layout for a card I needed to make for the newest member of my Stampin' Up! team who recently achieved a 'rising star' milestone for consistent sales during her first quarter; an achievement to be celebrated! Here's my card:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Shoot For The Stars - I thought the starry flourish from the Stitched Stars Dies was perfect for the flourish in the sketch and totally fitting with my congratulatory theme, so I cut it out of copper foil for a swirl of shiny stars.

Brightly Gleaming - I picked up on the starry theme with a piece of Brightly Gleaming designer paper and used the Night of Navy/copper colour combo as the basis for the rest of my card. I also added a narrow copper scalloped border and a trio of copper star embellishments to my card. I love this paper - great for all kinds of occasions, not just Christmas.

Strong & Beautiful - The 'Strong and Beautiful' stamp set has some wonderful empowering sentiments and I chose to feature two on today's card; one on the front of this card and another on the inside:

 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!
