Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession “Oh My Stars” design team challenge. My project today is clean and simple and was made using the new Stars set. Red, white and blue was the first color combination that came to mind and I had fun mixing and matching the colors on to highlight the different segments of each star.
I cut the stars out once in red and once in blue. I turned each of the large star sections face down, filled in all the negative openings with the opposite color pieces and adhered in place with tape. I cut the blue and white strips of cardstock and attached them together with ATG adhesive.
I applied mounting tape to the back of the layered strip and attached it to the card base. Each star was attached in place with mounting tape. I cut an extra couple of tiny stars and attached them to the card base with glossy accents. I chose to go for a patriotic look for my card today but I can see them being used for masculine card, Christmas cards and cards for kids.
Why don’t you come along and play with us. To enter the challenge go to the Impression Obsession Blog (all the details are there!). A random challenge card will be selected to showcase on the IO blog and you can enter to win a $25 gift certificate to IO just by playing! I hope you will go check out what the other IO teams members created for the challenge.
Kittie Caracciolo (that’s me)
Card size: 5.50" x 4.25"
This is classy! I typically don’t care for 4th cards, but this is just stunning Kittie, you’ve hit it out of the ball park . . . I love it! Simple and elegant, I adore the tiny stars on the right of the design . . . perfection!
Kittie, your cards NEVER disappoint. You always do something no one would think of. Am loving the different sizes on this card and the fact that they are placed opposite each other, not the usual scattered on a card. Keep the cards coming. And I’ll keep enjoying and trying to duplicate them.
Thanks for this holiday card with just the right balance of color. Like the clean lines and uncluttered space.
