Inlaid Stars

I made this card yesterday, but I'm just not sure about it so I pondered whether to post it or not.  I decided in the end to put it out there because people like different things :)

I used the colors from ColourQ and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch to come up with this.


I used my Verve Starry Die to cut several times into a Whisper White card base, then used the same die to cut into Celery, Tangerine, Bermuda and Orchid cardstock.  I inlaid the colored dies into the negative die cuts.

The sentiment is also an inlaid die cut but I left the white die cut in the card base (much easier to see IRL).  I stamped the "happy" in Orchid Opulence ink.

Thanks for looking.




Products used:

Stamps:  Shenanigans (CAS-ual Fridays)
Ink:  Orchid Opulence
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  Starry Die (Verve), Birthday die (PTI)

Cheers
Karren

Love your card,Karren, wish I could see the inlaid stars better because I know they look fabulous! I also know how hard it is to get a good photo of all the detail! So happy you decided to post and join in the fun at the colourQ, thanks for playing!
