Hello! It’s been a few weeks since I have done a Silhouette post, blame the internet, but I have a quick and simple card today which packs a punch! Today’s project features the printable glow in the dark sticker paper. However, for this project, I didn’t print onto the paper, but just instead directly cut out the design to stick on to my card. I had an idea in my head of creating a galaxy background with glow in the dark stars and a lovely sentiment. Well this ‘I love you more than all the stars’ was the perfect quote from the design store! It is quite an easy project, so great to whip up in a tight spot!
Creating the Galaxy background:
To create the background card panel I used watercolours. I made sure that I added a generous amount of clear water to a piece of watercolour card. Then I dropped in a variety of blues, greys and black colours into the water allowing to blend. In addition, I also added small amounts of purple, yellow and orange colours to help give that ‘galaxy’ look. This was dried with a heat gun, and I repeated apply colour several times until I was happy with the look. Don’t worry, it will look a mess when you are making it, but it will look great in the end!
Cutting 'I love you more than all the stars' details:
Download the design by Sarah Hurley in the design store (Design ID #244651) and add to your design space. Resize the design to fit your card panel. I ungrouped the design to remove an very small stars that maybe trickier to cut. In addition, I copied and pasted many of the different size stars to fill out the panel. If it helps, draw a rectangle out the size of your card panel to ensure it fits.
Send this to your machine to cut, using the ‘Sticker sheet, glow in the dark’ material. Remember to do a test cut! Once cut, I used the Silhouette Spatula to help lift the cut out stickers of the backing sheet and onto my card panel.
