Zodiac Card Set

Hello! Welcome to our new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. Our challenge is Anything Goes. I am using images from Knitty Kitty, one of our sponsors for this challenge.

As soon as I saw this digital set, I fell in love with it. It reminded me of a stamp set from Mama Elephant that I have my eyes on but never get to acquiring. I was inspired by the cards made by Val using the Mama Elephant stamp set. And, when we talk about zodiac signs, I just cannot leave one image behind, right? Because if I will be asked to create a card using one image from this set, of course, I will lean towards my birthday zodiac sign which you will find out what it is at the end of this post.

I colored the images using Copic markers. I fuzzy cut the images, leaving a small border around each image. For the background, I am using a Hero Arts Star Galaxy Background rubber stamp. I played around with this rubber stamp, using different inks and different kinds of paper to ink on. I die cut this background using a frame die from Mama Elephant Peek A Frame Creative Cuts die set. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Written in the Stars stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock using Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. I die cut the sentiment using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die. For the star, I used Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags die. The sentiment and image were adhered with foam tape.

For the base card, I am using a 110lb. Neenah cardstock. I embossed the front of the base card using We R Memory Keepers Next Level 3D Gemstone embossing folder. I adhered the panels on this using fun foams.

I can't believe I came up with 12 note cards right away. It took me a while to create these but once I knew how one card looked and the steps to create it, the rest was just easy to make.

Aries (March 21-April 19) & Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Gemini (May 21-June 20) & Cancer (June 20-July 22)

Leo (July 23-August 22) & Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Libra (September 23-October 22) & Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) & Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) & Pisces (February 19-March 20)

I stamped a sentiment inside the card with the corresponding image horoscope sign. This is how it looks featuring my birth zodiac sign. The main sentiment is also from the Hero Arts Written in the Stars stamp set. The celebrate sentiment is also from Hero Arts. The personalized zodiac sign sentiment was stamped using Lawn Fawn Milo's ABC stamp set.

Please come and join us in today's Incy Wincy Designs Challenge. I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful work.
