Sunday Quickie

I made this quick card for one of my nephews who turned 16 this week,looking at it now I wish that I'd got Nestability Stars as these Sizzix stars look too random in shape. Have any of you got the Nestie stars if you have, do you get much use out of them or do you find them an unnecessary purchase? Anyway,I layered up the black and white card,cut out 3 stars in black then stuck them onto white card stock and cut around them leaving a white border.I stamped and matted the greeting hand trimming it and shaping the card placing 3d pads under some areas and using glue in others so that the greeting formed a wave shape.

It doesn't show in the photo but I used stickles around the white edge of the stars but I did,honest!
That's it for now,another quick easy card,challenge less at the moment unless you know of any I could use it for.
Thanks for stopping by,have a great day,

I actually like the randomness on those stars! I have Nestie ones and I do use them regularly on men's and boy cards!

Great boys card! I like the stars, they look good but I know what you mean- it's difficult to hand cut stars!
