Good Friends Are Like Stars


Although this looks a bit like a kraft card base it's actually yellow - although what specific yellow I couldn't tell you as it was in my pile of random-who-knows-where-the-heck-it-came-from cardstock. The stars and sentiment are both heat embossed and because I embossed on top of embossing I had to do a bit of touching up with a Copic.   Since it's a one layer card and also uses all Unity stamps I'm entering it in this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge (to make the sentiment the focal point) and the All Things Unity challenge (to make a one layer card).  





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Yellow) Craft supply
Stamps:  (Sentiment and Images from January 2011 Kit of the Month - To The Moon and Back) Unity Stamp Co.
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Orange) ColourBox
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Ranger
Copic:  YR68

As a big fan of heat embossing, I have to say... wow! Love how this card turned out. (I'm also glad I'm not the only one with no-name cardstock. :P)
