Cowgirl Star

This stamp was a gift from my wonderful friend, KAREN! She is so sweet! :) I had it sitting on my desk and decided to give it a whirl. The image is stamped in chocolate craft ink. See the barbed wire stamped in Versamark on the main panel? I LOVE that stamp. It is made by the same company, Deadbeat Designs. They offer a whole line of "Texan" stamps.

After I stamped all the pieces of the card, I taped them all down. I then cut out the largest star from the STICKY STARS and laid it in the corner where I wanted it. This went over 3 different layers of card stock. Then I removed the red liner, heated lightly and dumped some chocolate glitter over the star! I added a center star embellishment (stamp also from Deadbeat) and popped that up using a RED LINE CIRCLE BOOSTER. It is adhered tightly even though it is attached to glitter. :) I finished off the card by adding some distressed edges to some of the layers.
Sketch is from The Cat's Pajama's Tuesday. Check it out HERE!

TIP: If you have already assembled your card and decide you want to distress the edges of your card stock, simply use a bone folder to pry up the edges and distress. I rub back and forth under the layer and sometimes curl it with my fingertips.
