The Greatest Showman

Happy Friday friends!  Katie here today and gearing up for the weekend.  I am sooooo ready for it and hoping to have a little fun time, perhaps watching a movie featuring Hugh Jackman… hint. 

Admittedly, I am not a huge musical  fan and I didn’t think I would like the movie The Greatest Showman.  But… a friend of mine sang it’s praises and I watched it and loved it!  Today’s card is inspired by that movie and with that friend in mind.

 

Here is my card inspired by this scene in the movie.   I used a lot of goodies on this card, old and new. 

I started by taking a piece of smooth white cardstock 4 X 5.25 and distressing it with my Blending Buddy and distress inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire).  

Once I had the look I wanted, I used ran it through my die cutting machine with my Starry Skies Coverplate.  Then I ran it through again with the Embossed Edge Circle Stack in the middle. Next, I used the Shine Brighter Stencil on the cut out circle, with white and yellow ink to create a spotlight.  I mounted that layer flat onto a navy cardstock base.  I took the outer layer and mounted it on the base using foam tape, so there was some dimension. I added some gold star embellishments and set it aside. 

Next, I used the square postage die from the Mini Slimline Card and Envelope set to create the square for the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from The Greatest Friend on Earth set and mounted that on the base with foam tape.  

Then I broke out the Le Cirque set, stamped and colored the images on Copic friendly paper.  I colored them with Copics (B12, B24, B26, E00, E02, E13, E15, E18, V15, V17, C7, C5, C3, C1, RV06, RV04, RV02, Y13, Y15, R27, R22, R14).  I cut them out using the corresponding Le Cirque Die Set.   I used a sparkle pen to make my Zendaya character shimmer and shine.  I mounted them on the base using foam tape and put my trapeze artist in the spotlight.  Lastly, I added some white gel pen highlights. 

Well that’s all, I really hope you like this card today and thank you for visiting.
