AAA cards Challenge #52: thanks/thanksgiving



AAA cards Challenge #52: thanks/thanksgiving

For my card I had done a lot of thinking and contemplating and in the end I totally cased a card from Pinterest, from candles in the garden.


I don't know how he/she made it, so I  made it how I would.

I started with the sentiment. I had to print it out as I don't have a nice thank you (bedankt) stamp, just a die and that's too big.
I started in English with Thank you but then swapped borders ;-)
I have a few "thanks" stamps but none really rocked my boat.
 I then punched stars from white cardstock and craftfoam, which punched out really well to  my surprise, I was anticipating loads of stucked punches...lucky me ;-)
I had never punched craftfoam before so I'm well surprised .

Colored the stars with my Spectrum Noir markers in a rainbow kind of spectrum. adhered them onto the foam stars with fastgrab Tacky glue and slathered them with Wink of Stella (clear) then covered the lot with glossy accents.
Adhered the stars onto the card with multi  medium mat from Ranger.



this is the original, from candles in the garden: I love the font on the sentiment and he/she has mat stars
