I was inspired by the Craft it Forward June project to create my card. It's a card with stars created to be sent as a thank you to someone serving in the military. I love stars! So I took the star idea and made this card!.
I started with the silver star cut with the #3 die template from Spellbinders Stars Five S4-092. I made score lines from each point to the opposite notch. Then I made moutain folds on each point with valley folds from center to the notch. A little tricky but doable!!! The result is a 3D star! I used 3D Foam Squares behind the center to keep the star dimensional. I cut a red star using #4 Stars Five to put behind the silver star. I added a couple "tails" cut from silver and red paper using die templates from Spellbinders Nested Pennants S5-029. A piece of Worldwin white paper was cut with Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles S4-306, #5 die template for a background to the star. I stamped "you're my star" in the corner with Ranger Denim ink and clear heat embossed it. The striped DP is the back side of Celebrate from Reminisce. I found it in my stash. I'm not sure if it's still available. It's one of my favorites! I cut it slightly smaller than my card to leave a white border. My card is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".
