I am still working on my mission to use up some of my stash. UFO's and VOS are first on the list.
When I packed for the move, I was surprised to see just how many stickers I still have. I know they are very passe to a card maker, but my non card maker pals don't mind them!
I am working on a series of beach/fishing/boating/surf/sand type cards, so had an iris case already full of supplies to go with these themes. When I saw this ship sticker in my stash, I popped open the case and threw this one in there too.
I am working from this iris case this week...so grabbed an assortment of papers and embellishments from there and created this card.
I am very proud of the fact that the stamped sentiment is from a couple of years ago and is finally getting used! I had stamped off several onto kraft card, then cut and inked them up for use on some bird cards I was making at the time.
The stars seemed appropriate as you can navigate by the stars and I thought they also suited birthday celebrations. I gave them a generous coating of Stardust Stickles and then coated the largest star in the bottom left corner with Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Stickles. I painted some of that on the kraft circle mat and onto the hessian as well! Here is a wee close up...
