This was my first time playing with Close to my Heart's new Fanfare paper pack. Such fun colors! I kept this card simple because I made it for my dad's birthday...the day before the Fourth of July. But it just so happens that this card will be doing double-duty, because the day after his birthday he's retiring!!! Yippee! I'm so excited for him!
Shining Star, one of my all-time favorite stamp sets for the star and "celebrate." I got this set in my Consultant Kit 3 years ago and it's constantly a go-to for me. Because it's such a great set, it's still available if you wanna snag it!
To give the star that two-tone effect, I first stamped it in sunny yellow, then just rocked the edges in cranberry.
Thanks for stopping by!
