Birthday Superstar 08543
For my Anything Goes card, I’m using the just released Superstar set along w/ the new Double Stitched Stars dies. These dies go perfectly with the Sparkling Stars dies, so if you’ve already snagged them, you’re in luck. If not, go ahead and grab those when you get the others..trust me, you’re going to be using these a lot…birthdays, graduation, Christmas..the list is unending!

The multi color bg was done on a large manila tag using the Wrinkle Free Distress technique. I used the Distress inks one at a time and let the colors dry in between so they wouldn’t get muddy. When I finished, I used one of the smaller Double Stitched Rectangles to cut it then I die cut the star shapes & added the white outline stars inside the openings. Behind the star openings, I added a lime green star w/ the star outline gold embossed & the gold embossed greeting on vellum behind the largest star.

A few more die cut & gold embossed stars were sprinkled around on the rest of the die cut stitched rectangle layers.
