Hi there! I received a bunch of questions about the galaxy backgound for one of my previous cards, so I decided to put together a video to show how I created two different ones using distress inks and white cardstock.
It’s definitely the perfect background for a card that doesn’t need much else.
I have had this set for awhile and even though they are perfect for Christmas cards, it also works for birthday cards or just because cards.
For this card, I used colors for the balloons that matched the colors peeking through the galaxy in the background, making it really playful and whimsical.
For the second card, I really wanted to play with purple colors for a galaxy instead of a typical dark blue and black background. I like how this looks so different from the first one, with just a few color changes. It makes such a big difference.
If you’re interested in learning more, below is my video showing my process video of these two cards.
