Happy birthday Lachie!

It seems that the vast majority of cards I am making at the moment are for kids' birthday cards....and here's another one!

This one was for the 3rd birthday of our favourite 3 year old boy - the son of some gorgeous friends of ours, the guy half of whom is also Hannah's beloved Godpa :)

The only stamping that even exists on this one is the Polka Dot background (again!!  Is it getting a bit boring yet or do you guys love it as much as I do?!)  Other than that it's all about punches - the two different sized star ones to be precise! 

It's probably fairly easy to work out, but in case it's not, here's how you get the two tone stars...  First you push the small star punch as far as it will go into a piece of cardstock and punch it out.  Then taking the larger punch, turn it upside down so you can see through the 'window' that is the punch shape and sliding it over where you punched the small star, line it up so that the hole you made with the small punch is right in the middle of the larger one and punch.  This will give you a large star with a small star punched out of the middle of it.  Then you just pop a contrasting small star in the centre, add a brad and you're done!

Hope you had a great day Lachie!!
