Starry Congrats!

Time to share a couple of cards a la
BELLA BLVD

Blue, Blue Happy Birthday to You!

Supplies:
Birthday Boy: Borders, Toadilly Cool, Streamers, Cute Cuts; Button Market:
 Orange Stars, Blues; Designer Tape: Orange Stripe

I love the 3-D effect that was created by punching two stars into the brown paper
 and then applying it over the background paper with foam dots.
I then hand-stitched buttons to the center of each star and then a round button,
which made a nice bridge between the two!
 A few beads were sewn onto the cupcake to bring dimension to the sprinkles.

 Congrats, Couple 
Supplies:
Kiss Me: Flutter, Love Notes, Borders & Cute Cuts, Just Write Journaling Stickers,
 Alpha+Bits Stickers; High Five Alpha Stickers: Brown-Cream; 
Ciao Chip Elements: Trees; Crochet Flowers: Dahlia;
 Designer Tape: Pickle Juice Dot

By keeping the focal point at the bottom 2/3 of this card really made the other 1/3 look lonely!
When creating cards with cardstock, I like to spiff it up a bit by using an embossed pattern.
A little piece of doily peeking out also helps to dress-up the embossed cardstock.
 For the bottom, I cut various papers into small strips, adhered to a background pape
r and then machine stitched them together.

  1. The top one is my fave! The cut out stars, the pretty blues broke up by the striped yellow pp on the bottom - FAB!
