Geometric Mono

On Saturday I found myself needing a boy's birthday card in a hurry. I hate giving in and buying cards so I put together this quick make using Docraft's Geometric Mono range.  I love this range as it has so many co-ordinating elements- for this card I've just used the the 6x6 papers and a ribbon, along with a star die from the X Cut Star Nesting Dies. I use stars a lot on boy's cards and these dies are my favourite.

To create the star panel I simply made 3 star apertures in a piece of white card using a die and then placed the papers behind the openings. To ensure the stars lined up I drew a pencil line vertically down the centre of the card before cutting.

Although I wanted a CAS card I felt something else was needed. I added a strip of paper and ribbon across the centre of the card before adding the star panel using foam pads.

I'm going to work with this range a bit more this week so watch this space!

I would like to enter this card for:
