About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Birthday Stars

Hello fellow crafters! I hope you have all had a great week. This weeks challenge at the Outlawz is stars and snowflakes. The idea is to use stars and or snowflakes in your creation.  I chose to make a birthday card for my mom. There are several pictures of this car since there are multiple aspects to this card. So, pictures first.



Ok, so, first things first....papers: All papers are scrap. I love it when scrap papers come together to make such awesome projects.
Inspiration: came from Pinterest and of course, I can't find the link again. So, thanks for the inspiration whoever you are!

The front of the card is a tag that I elongated and fan folded. It is being held shut with bakers twine from my stash. The paper on the front was embossed with a star EF. The sentiment is computer generated. The stars were cut from the Cricut cartridge Cricut Craft Room Basics.

Inside, again the sentiment is computer generated and the stars are the same cut as on the outside. The ribbon is a scrap from my stash.

I love the way this turned out and I hope you do too.
