We’re BACK!

Wahoo! Our site is up and we are ready to rock-n-roll! But we did lose a few blog posts from earlier this week so today is one of those posts. Unfortunately they were some Fourth of July posts so it may seem a little  late so sorry about that!

BUT the good thing is that you can make these stars ANY time of the year! They look SO good on layouts, too.  Keep on reading for some great step-by-step directions from Designer Kate Nolan-Denham!

1)Create a card base, A2 size, made out of Red Rose Core’dinations Cardstock.

2)Cut a piece of White Glove CoreCouture Glitter Cardstock to 4″ x 5.25″. Glue to card base.

3)Deboss a piece of Navy Cardstock from the 4.25 x 5.5″ Darks collection and layer it on top of the white mat. I used Craft Concepts Solid Stars embossing folder for this card. The debossing is a GREAT contrast to the raised stars, don’t you think?

4)Die cut 3 larger stars in different sizes and 2 small stars out of the Red Rose cardstock leftover from making the base of the card.  I used Sizzix Star Framelits.

5)Score each large star at each point.

6)Scor the stars along the scored lines and sand them with the Sandit Gadget to give them a 3-D effect.

7)Die cut a label shape out of the White Glove CoreCouture Glitter Cardstock, trim the bottom of it so it will be flush with the White Glove mat already on the card.

8)Stamp the sentiment on the label you die cut in #7. I used Spellbinders Label.

9)Add the stars and sentiment label to the card using 3-D foam. I used Helmar Zapdots.

10)Give to someone.  This card is bound to brighten anyone’s day!
