I really like the starburst effect and had a ton of fun making this card using it but I wanted to do a different variation for mine to go better with the rainbow color scheme I wanted to use from Stampin' Royalty.
Isn't that giraffe crazy! I love all of the bright colors! I would have loved to do a punch art giraffe, but that would have gone way against my plan to keep it simple today!
The base of my card is 4 1/4" square so it will still fit in a standard envelope, even though the starbursts hang over the edge a little bit. For the black background I embossed it with the Chevron Embossing folder and then took the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark pad and rubbed it across the top. I have had a lot of comments about the Illuminate pad. It is now available in the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog and is great for adding a subtle bit of bling! I have also heard that it can be used like a VersaMark pad, though I can't be for sure because I am too lazy to drag out all of my embossing goodies right now. :) The sentiment is stamped on Shimmer White cardstock, my new go-to white lately! Those are actually rhinestones on the starbursts, even though they look more like pearls in the picture!
