Orange Card with Multicolored Stars

Many stars and bright colors for a "Celebrate" card. Usually I would think of orange and black as Halloween colors, but this card is not at all Halloween-ish.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Neenah solar white (sentiment banner and colored stars) and Papertrey Ink orange zest (card base) and true black (outline stars and banner layer).
  • The stars are die cut with Papertrey Ink super star border die set. The "hollow" stars are cut in black and layered over the "solid" stars, which are cut in white and colored with Copic markers.
  • The sentiment is computer-printed in black ink using "Hobo Std Medium" font, outline and expanded.
  • The multicolor stars and letters are colored with Copic markers G14, V04, YR04, and B14.
  • The "v" in the banner is cut with a square punch. (Correction April 11, 2012: Insert the card stock from the side of the punch ... not from the bottom.)
  • The sentiment banner is popped up on foam tape for some dimension.
