Sneak peek week continues on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog! Today's featured set, which will be available on January 18, is a graphic set that you will turn to again and again for those hard-to-make masculine cards, especially the young men in your life.
I just used some of the fantastic mix-and-match words in this set to make a birthday card for my brother. I first made a panel of cardstock strips, die cut a star from the center, then added some texture to the panel with an impression plate.
After stamping the "totally epic" sentiment through the star opening onto the card base, I impressed a smaller star on top of it. Instead of added dimensional embellishments like buttons or pearls, I kept the design flat and masculine by punching circles in the top panel before adhering it with foam dots.
