My youngest grandson is having a birthday at the end of the month and I made him this card. The background is junk mail that arrived a while back and the look and feel of the paper was so much like leather I set it aside hoping to be able to use it on a card. I decided to layer these two off cuts on either side of it and I like how the holes provide a linear feel to the card. The stitching was part of the background so I decided to repeat it by stitching the greeting in place. If I had drawn a pencil line for the stitching it would have been better - I will know better for next time. I added an embossed star sequin with a gold brad on the right hand side of the greeting and several small confetti stars to the background. I added a coordinating ribbon and glued the end to the back of the paper and then glued this large element to the front of a green card. I added a gold foil die cut star (SX) which I cut from a piece of packaging I saved a while back. I applied the star to the card front using 3D foam tape. A fun card for a little guy who has so much fun playing with his trains.
