Another star card for my oldest grandson!! I started by creating the embossed star. I cut a piece of foil packaging in a circle shape, embossed a star and then added more texture and details. I will be posting a tutorial soon. Once it was finished I used 3D foam tape to adhere it to a gold scalloped circle which I had die cut with my Nestibilities. I also punched a hole in each scallop. I added a safety pin to a white cardstock circle and glued it to the back so he can remove it and wear it like a badge!! I die cut the label (SX) out of black cardstock, tied the badge to it with black fiber and then embellished around it using a gold gel pen. I created the background using embossed metal foil tape which I had coloured with transparent acrylic paint for a project a long time ago. I trimmed and glued two pieces - one to the top and one to the bottom of a blue card and glued the focal element over them. I added the trimmed laser printed greeting over the bottom edge of this element using a star brad which I coloured with Sharpie marker to coordinate with the card. I glued the flagged end down with double sided tape. Once I was done I still thought it needed a bit of something so I added black faux stitching around the outside edges and in the spaces on the outside of the middle of the label with a fine tip Sharpie marker. That was better!!
This large card was fun to make. It actually uses the cover from the pad of paper!! I layered a greeting in the glittery green frame where the name of the paper "Songbirds" was printed. I added a green layer that filled the area and then added a layered oval greeting that was embellished with watercolour and mounted onto a red scalloped oval (SU). I die cut the scalloped border for the top(SU), butted it to the trimmed decorative border and taped them together with regular tape. I cut a strip just the size I needed for the bottom and taped them together. I glued this large element to a white card front. To continue the glitter theme of the paper I added dots of iridescent glitter glue to the scallops and two rows along the bottom. It still needed a bit of something to I dug out some red daisy flowers and glued them into the scallops and then added a dot of glitter glue to their centers. That was better!! Love this paper!!!!
