You Are a Shining Star

Hello everyone! It's Maria here with you on the blog today, sharing this cute and simple card showcasing the ADORABLE Never Stop Dreaming Stamp Set and Never Stop Dreaming Dies, with the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set and In the Grass Border Dies.
To make the card, I placed the stamps from the Never Stop Dreaming Stamp Set inside my stamping tool and stamped the images on some Neenah Solar White Card stock using Raven Hybrid Ink. I stamped the images with the help of the Stampendable Stamping Tool to get some really good impression. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the Never Stop Dreaming Dies to cut them all out.
The background is a pattern paper from a previously released Exclusive Craft Kit that I die-cut using the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set. [Side note: y'all need to check out the exclusive craft kits as they are packed-full of crafting goodies]. I used my white gel pen to draw dots and starbursts to the background for added texture and interest. I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard. Since the paper is 6x6, I cut the extra using the In the Grass Border Dies. I adhered the grass panel to the background panel with some 1/8 inch double-sided tape. Other than that, I didn't really need to do anything else since the background already has everything to create my scene.
Next, I adhered all of the images on the card with glue. Since I needed the sentiment to stand out on the card, I stamped it on some black card stock using Watermark Ink. I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and heat-set with my heating tool. I cut the sentiment using the Fiskars Paper Trimmer and adhered on the card with double-sided adhesive. I finished my design by using some white gel pen to draw dots and stars on the background for added texture and interest. I also used some Stickles to add some shine to the moon. Here's another look at the finished card:
