Gold Star

By Taheerah | 28th January 2013 | 5 Comments

Hey everyone! I hope your Monday hasn’t been too terrible!

I’m back today featuring a card I created for Gel-à-Tins featuring the Super Star set!

Did you ever get a gold star for good work at school? I loved getting those when I was a kid! I wanted to recreate that feeling of achievement in the form of a congratulations card:

Fun huh?! I love how this turned out!

I started by die cutting the file tab from Rustic White cardstock using the Desktop File Left die and the notepad pages from A:Muse Graph Paper using the Spiral Notebook Page die. I inked the edges of all of them with VintageTouch Chamomile ink and crumpled up the notepad pages a little.

On the file tab I stamped the lined image and the ‘Inspiration’ word from Desktop File: Inspiration using Aqua Mist ink, the A+ and the Congratulations sentiment from It’s Official using Pure Poppy ink and Versafine Onyx Black ink respectively, and added a strip of fun washi tape.

Then all I needed was my star! I stamped the star onto cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat 
embossed with gold embossing powder to make it really shine!

I trimmed out the star and then adhered all the elements together onto my Rustic White card base with Pinflair Glue Gel, adding a fun Pebbles library clip to finish off the look!

I hope you’ll join me back here tomorrow for something new. Thanks so much for stopping by!
