A monochromatic baby card with a hand cut corrugated cardboard star with some twine over a polka dot background

I continue to create cards for my stash!!  This one is also a creative stretch in that is very monochromatic.   I used a brown card front and mounted a piece of colour printed polka dot paper to it which I had sponged around the edges to soften it a bit.  I applied some double sided tape in the area I wanted to position my star and applied a length of twine which I had wound onto my hand which gave me some nice rounded loops.  I rearranged them a bit and then just pressed them into the tape to keep them in place.  I sponged the edges of my hand cut star.  I had cut a bunch of these for a project and while back and it the last one from my stash.  I applied tape to the back of the star and mounted it over the twine.  I really like the look of it!!  I sponged the circle greeting in the center and on the outside edge before mounting it to the center of my star.  Super happy with the way this one worked out!!
