I have received some late Christmas cards this week and rather than send Christmas cards this late I made some New Year cards. These were great fun as I don't normally do this. I went to Pinterest for inspiration but ended up searching for Star Cards. What a great variety!
Can't really say any particular card inspired this but I love how it turned out! Used different specialty papers on this one.
The Black/White Pearled Basics papers just shimmer so fabulously and the Vellum really sets off the star layers. A bit of Black Licorice Twine and a few sequins and voila!
This card was as close as I could come to a card I seen I used the Star Don dies and Gold Silk to set off the design.
Years ago I demoed some products at a stamp club I belonged to using Posh Impressions Sponges and Inks (and I still have these!) The funky background is made using some glossy card stock with these products. I do think the cool new Spring Parade paper would work wonderfully for this effect, too.
This stamp from the Be Happy set is perfect for this card and I used my Stardust Black Gel pen to make the word Sparkle pop.

I hope to make a couple more similar cards as I just love how these turned out! They would be great for guy's birthday cards, too. What do you think?
