Written In The Stars

Make it Monday with Alison Day Designs2.pngWelcome to Make It Monday!

Today’s share is super quick because I know you’d way rather be outside in this gorgeous sunshine, right? I’m so glad June-uary is almost done with! Bring on summer!!

This is a card I made for my old boss. I needed something non-flowery, not pink, but fun to reflect his personality. He had just won Top Store Manager in the entire company so we really wanted something special.

Stars Congratulations Card by Alison Day Designs

The beauty of this card is that it could be easily turned into a birthday card or Father’s Day card by simply changing the sentiment.

To make it I simply cut out various sized stars with my Silhouette using several different, complimentary coloured patterned papers. I then went about layering the stars and figuring out how I wanted them arranged on my card front. For interest, the middle one is raised up with pop dots.

I used my Silhouette but you could easily do this without one. Either use some nesting star dies, or hand draw several star shapes in graduating sizes and trace them onto your paper before cutting them out by hand.

And wouldn’t this be a fantastic 4th of July card in red, white, and blue? Think I may have to make some for my Etsy shop!

Well, that’s all for today. Told you it would be quick!

Have a great week everyone!
