Hey there, crafty friends! Today Blog Design Team member Sharon Harnist is helping out those of us that are a bit forgetful by encouraging us to have a few belated birthday cards on hand. Hers is so adorable that you just know that these will be fun to make and to send! (And the perfect way to beg forgiveness, too!)
Are you like me and always have good intentions on mailing out birthday cards
on time, but life gets in the way? Then I have the perfect card for you today
and this sweet Shooting Stars stamp set has the perfect
I stamped the adorable sheep, shooting star and curved birthday sentiment all
together onto Sugar Cube cardstock, but all of the stamps are
separate so you can use them however you wish! The sheep was colored with Copic
markers C00, C0, C1, C2, R00, R20; and W00, W0, W2 (shadow). The shooting star
was lightly watercolored with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink then topped with Clear
Wink of Stella, as was the top of the sheep’s head and her eyes. The colored
images were die-cut with the largest Stitched Circle Stacklet
and popped up with foam tape.
The Starry Night Cutting Plate was used to cut stars into a
piece of Salt Water Taffy cardstock, which was adhered to a
silver glitter paper base, which made for a sky full of pretty sparkling stars!
I stamped the other sentiment from this stamp set inside the card:
Perfectly fitting for a belated birthday wish! The shooting star was stamped
with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, lightly watercolored with the same ink and
again, topped with Clear Wink of Stella marker, for a pretty shimmer.
Now I’m ready for the next birthday I may miss!
Thank you, Sharon, for sharing this darling belated birthday card with us today! Please visit Sharon on her blog, PaperFections, for more of her wonderful work.
