I’m taking a little pause from all the holiday craftiness to bring you a galaxy love note, featuring the Scrapbook.com stamp set: You and Me Quotes and Sayings.
When I say the “You are my true North” sentiment, I immediately thought of Aurora Borealis, which made me think of galaxy cards.
First I made my galaxy card, by using some distress inks on a Neenah A2 white cardstock panel. The Distress colors I used are: squeezed lemonade, abandoned coral, worn lipstick, broken china, and finally black soot. I used some ink blending tools to blend the various colors on my panel, then the black soot on top. I went back and added some more color on top of the black soot, but looking at the pictures, I think I could have blended it a little more. Next, I added some watered down white acrylic paint splatters for the stars.
I heat embossed the sentiment about the upper middle of my card. I used Versamark ink and Ranger superfine white embossing powder. Next, I used one of the smaller hearts from the Hero Arts nesting dies to die cut a heart around the sentiment.
I added some foam tape to the galaxy panel, and adhered it to Neenah A2 solar white card base. I created an inlay card design by glueing the heart sentiment where it should go on the panel, like a puzzle piece.
I love the way my card turned out, and I absolutely love that sentiment! I will be giving my hubs this card for sure!
I hope you like my card as well!
