Design Element: Stars

I've barely begun to delve into my Noel Mignon "Study Hall" kit from September so this week I thought I should make a few cards to show the versatility in this kit. I chose a common design element - stars - and made two different cards.

For the "Joy" card, I started punching out stars and embellishing them and putting the whole card together. I knew I wanted the sentiment to go on the blue star but I wasn't sure what it was going to be until the entire card was finished. I decided the colors looked decidedly "Christmas" so the card quickly became just that.

I knew going in that this would be a "Happy Birthday" card and used the tiny My Mind's Eye stickers to put the sentiment on a chalkboard label sticker by Fancy Pants.

I added a little machine stitching for texture to both cards and that was it! Quick and easy!

I've been sooooo busy this week what with Halloween and a fun Harvest Party at our church that I helped organize. And so now I'm feeling very behind on my household work for the week and I seemed to have done something to my low back so that doesn't help matters much. But, I continue to plug away because that's just what you do as a mom. No rest for the weary! :)

Have a great day!
