I am a big fan of IKEA boxes and have quite a few of them. The other day I needed a couple extra boxes so I unpacked a set. And what do you know....there is an extra piece used to stabilize the packing. Endless possibilities emerged in my head.....especially using the Big Shot and Sizzix dies.
So this is how the black IKEA star came to life...LOL.
Here is my card:
The text background is stamped using masking technique.
The fishtail pattern paper is made by stamping a Simon Says Stamp border stamp with two different blue colours.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts. Here I have heat embossed it, which gives it a little extra dimension.
And then of course the black IKEA star adhered with 3D.
With this card I am participating in Color Throwdown's Challenge,
in Mojo Monday's sketch Challenge,
in Sweet Stampin' Challenge with the theme "Not Cute",
in Simon Says Stamp's Challenge with the theme "Patriotic",
in A Blog Named Hero's Challenge with the theme "Fave Stamp".
