Morning all. Time for a new challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond. This is taking me back to basics as I haven't done any paper piecing in years. My card is probably a little unseasonal in amongst all the valentines at the moment but when I went to chose a stamp it was lying on the top of the pile screaming at me to be used. I have no idea how long I've had this stamp. It says it is an Anita's design but I have no recollection of it and I certainly haven't used it before. Double bonus then. Maybe I need to go and have another look through my stamps.
I stamped the design on white card and then again on some red and glittery red paper. Having cut out my stars I then stuck them all together. I had intended to use dimensional glue on the top layer and then forgot. The greeting is cut out of the same glitter card and I just used a scrap of old backing paper.
Here is how it turned out.
Considering I had no clue as to where I was going with this challenge I'm pretty pleased with the result. Plus, I have a start on next years stash of Christmas cards (I have a feeling it will be very lonely for a while).
Please pop over and join the fun.
Thanks for reading.
