Starry Backdrops Birthday

I'm coming in just under the wire (again) with my card for the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  This clean and simple design packs a much bigger punch in person than it does in the photo . . .

Starry Backdrops Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn Fawn
I used the layout and Lawn Fawn's Starry Backdrops stamp set to make a birthday card.  The background is an ombre panel created with a trio of blue distress inks, starting with the darkest at the top and moving to the palest at the bottom.  It took me three tries to get a panel with a gradient of color that I was happy with. 

Once that was accomplished, the stars were stamped across the top of the panel in silver ink, then heat embossed in silver for dimension and pop.  The set's "make a wish" sentiment was stamped just beneath the stars and also heat embossed. The finished panel was adhered to a navy blue card base.

Materials Used:
Starry Backdrops stamp set (Lawn Fawn); Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Faded Jeans distress inks (Ranger); Night of Navy cardstock (Stampin' Up!); silver embossing powder (Hero Arts)


  1. So very pretty, love your blending and the silver embossed stars.

  2. Oh, I love your ombre blue background on this gorgeous card! Thanks for joining us at CAS(E) This Sketch!
