You are amazing

Hi Everyone
Last night I felt like sitting down and playing. It was really nice to sit down and just craft to craft. Only problem is I made a huge mess for a simple card. Ahh even the huge mess made it lots of fun.

I pulled out a Simon Says Stamp die called Falling Stars. I must be on a stars kick this week. Because of the shape of the die it created this little indent in the cardstock when I ran it through my Big Shot.

I was just about ready to try again and thought I would try embossing it...Gotta love Paper Trey Ink's Impressions plates. It might be kind of hard to see in the photos, but it gave it a really nice texture and hid the indents from the star die.

Wrapping some seam binding gave it a really nice touch and the arrow from Stampin' up was a perfect...okay really the arrow was to hide a small tear I put in the cardstock. lol :)

I mounted the die cut piece to a standard A2 (4-14" x 5-1/2") card base and then pulled out a piece of black chalkboard style paper from the I heart summer paper pad by Simple Stories to do some white embossing with an Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday stamp.

Finally I added some dashed lines with my white gel pen and I was very happy with the results.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day

  1. Awesome save on the re-embossing idea! That was a fantastic idea! I love this card!!

  2. Beautiful! Question for you today....do you ever mail your cards? I have gone to a flatter card because it cost so darn much to mail when they have thicker embellishments. What are your thoughts?

  3. Beautiful card! Thanks for sharing. And, I will just go ahead and say it - I love this post because there's no video. I know there are blog readers that love videos, but I'm not one of them. I just don't have the time or patience for videos.

  4. What a lovely card. Thanks for taking the time to share.

  5. Hi Christina, Love your videos amd follow you on instagram!! Beautiful card! Thought you would want to know Kristina Werner did a video to prevent the indentation in the cards. Not sure if it was on her Kristina Werner video or Simon Says Stamp. :)

  6. this is so beautiful, love all your cards, you do beautiful work, and your videos are so easy to follow, thanks for sharing!!!!!

  7. I love this card and the falling stars die from SSS. I agree that it leaves an impression and what a clever way to disguise it.
