I've made this card to say huge thanks to our friends Kevin and Peter. We stayed at their beautiful home in the Cotswolds and they arranged for us to have a lovely meal to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary.
I chose Bashful Blue, Old Olive and More Mustard and the starry theme based on the SU! Rock Star Card Elements pack pictured in the SU! catty. I used a Sizzix die for the stars, popping some of them up with 3d foam pads.
The sentiment is from a clear set. SU! Classic inks bead up on clear stamps so I use chalk, pigment or VersaFine inks with my clear stamps. However, Kristina Werner gave a tip on a recent video about using VersaMark ink on the clear stamp before using SU! inks. I tried it for the sentiment on this card and it worked beautifully I'm chuffed to say!
Talking of Kristina, it's down to her videos that I have the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper for rounding my corners! I love that I can round all the corners of a card.
