Star Card

Hello! 

With being so busy this past week I nearly forgot to make a birthday card for Pat's lovely husband...
I always have feminine cards to hand but not so with male cards and this had to be made quickly


I opted to do an inlaid die card - I love this technique and it means that the card is pretty flat too


It also gave me an opportunity to try out some new distress inks I got this week - I used them to sponge CS for cutting out the stars... there's some pinkish colour in there but I don't think he'll mind


On another note, it was so busy and noisy at Thursday club special needs - our last craft class until the new year...
Pat brought along supplies for the group to make cards and angels and I brought supplies for them each to make one of these


20+ little reindeer and they were so happy ... Makes all the hard work so worthwhile to see them smile

Have a beautiful day and be safe

I still need to try that inlay technique. I always forget about it. Great card and nicely masculine. :-) The reindeer is precious. I can imagine how much fun they had making them. Hugs!

What a wonderful idea for Thursday Club! I can imagine you noisy it was, everyone being excited about the project etc. Love your card, too, the colors are beautiful and I agree: that inlaid technique has a special appeal!

Yummo, Ros, I adore this star card and the beautifully sponged colors! I have the dual-stitched circles and squares and rectangles, but I haven't purchased the dual stitched stars, because I mean, why, right? Well, now I SEE why! They are gorgeous! Sigh!!! And your sweet reindeer washcloths, please! Too cute for words!! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell
