The patterned papers for this version are also from the never ending bag of papers from Costco along with a gingham patterned paper printed in greyscale from Cuddly Buddly's A Patchawork of Papers Blue. The Costco papers are double sided and usually hae a bold print on one side and a toning subtle print on the other which is great for mixing and matching. Grey pearlised and plain black card stock were also used.
The Just for U was stamped and embossed on to a subtle patterned paper using VersaMark ink and Disco Black embossing powder from Stampendous. It was then stamped and embossed on to two of the bolder patterned papers.. Alternate letters were cut from each patterned paper design and paper pieced on to the main topper. The topper was then dry embossed using the Cuttlebug Falling Snow embossing folder. This welds the paper piecing to the card and adds texture which I hope you can see in the picture. A stitched border was added once the topper was framed and layered using square Grand Nestabilities dies.
Spellbinders star nestabilities dies were used to make embellishments to add to the topper. Whole stars and star frames were cut in different sizes and layered up in plain and foiled card. Star sequin waste was added behind frames and small peel off stars were added inside a frame. Small silver stars which were waste from a Marianne border die were added around the die cuts.
Silver stitching was also added to the base layers and along with black grosgrain ribbon and silver star brads these were the added embellishments.
