"Hello everyone and Happy 11th Birthday to SCT! In honor of the occasion I made a birthday card that I love to share with you all.

KressBdayCard1Supplies: cardstock: American Crafts; patterned paper: Bella Blvd; sticker: Echo Park; stamps: Penny Black; Deco Foil: Therm O Web

I used a few different techniques on this card to dress it up a little. The idea for this card started with the watercolor “night sky.” I’ve been on a watercolor painting kick lately and have been incorporating stamping and embossing. So for this sky I stamped white cardstock with stars using versamark and embossed them using gold sparkle powder. Then I was able to watercolor paint over the embossed design to create the sky. I stamped the sentiment onto the sky once everything was dry.

To create the three gold accent stars, I used Therm O Web’s gold deco foil. I cut three different sized stars out with my Silhouette machine, ran them through my xyron sticker maker and rubbed them onto the gold foil. It’s really like magic and such a fun product to have on hand to create customized embellishments.

The rest of the card was built using patterned paper from Bella Blvd. and a sticker sentiment from Echo Park. The result is a fun sparkly dreamy card perfect for an eleven year old!  Happy Birthday SCT!” ~ Marla Kress
