TYIC_7 The moment I saw this card on the Tag You’re It blog I was intrigued!  I absolutely loved it!  I am so glad I had a chance to play along this weekend.  After all yesterday was World Card Making Day and I had to do my part.  We had another baby born in our extended Michigan family and I wanted to make a special card for her.  Her name is Olivia Grace…isn’t that beautiful!  A lot of love and patients went into it…let me give you some of the details.  The first thing I did was embossed the white stars with embossing paste and my SU star stencil and let it dry.  Not sure if you can tell, but the yellow paper has a really cool texture.  I got it on sale for like .79 for 50 sheets. It feels like hand made paper.  Then I went to work on my tags.  The cool sentiment is from Verve and I had been wanting to get it inky for the first time and finally did!  I added both scalloped trims and some larger stars at the bottom of my SU punch tags to add some interest. The DP is from the same paper pack as my last post by DCVW Nanna’s Nursery. The tiny stars are from the inside of my new die cut from Verve, that I LOVE, and have linked up for you!  I was very meticulous where those tiny… tiny stars were placed. Once the card was all completely finished, I got the bright idea to add shimmer to the white stars.  It was tricky, but so worth it!  Not sure you can see it in the photo. So here is a close up!  The cool ribbon is also from Verve!  Added the button and all was complete!
