Thank You Gift
This is a thank you gift for an aunt and uncle who are letting me stay with them for a couple of nights this coming weekend (card making retreat). This is all Stampin up dies and stamps. The bundle is called Star of Light, in the current holiday catalogue (you can get the stamps and dies separately, but I wanted both). The idea I CASE(d) (copy and share everything), but put a different twist on it. I started with tent fold card bases in white 110 lb cardstock (Recollections), and then used more of the Recollections to cut a 3.75 x 5.25 piece. I die cut the solid star from the bundle a bit above centre on the layer piece. I took some shimmer and glitter paper and cut 1/2 inch strips a little longer the the card piece. Using 1/4 inch thick super sticky dollar store tape, I ran a line along one side of the glitter/shimmer papers. I also die cut a detailed star out of the same glitter/shimmer papers.
I stamped the sentiments in Palette hybrid inks Cognac and Charcoal just under the star, then adhered the strips to the sides of the layering piece. Once that was done, I put a LOT of foam tape on the back of the layering piece, and then centered it on the card base.
To get the detailed star in place, I simply used a liquid glue (Elmer’s craft bond glue), and put just enough on the back to make sure all the pointed parts and centre would lay flat. I took Craft tweezers, picked up the star, and carefully centered it into the hole.
Thanks for looking 🙂
