1.Cut 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of whisper white cardstock and fold it in half. This is your base.
2. Cut a 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of basic black cardstock.
Tip: Use stampin dimensionals to pop this piece of cardstock up off your base.
3. Cut a 4-1/2″ x 3″ piece of whisper white cardstock to layer on top of your basic black cardstock.
Tip: Typically, I would stamp this piece first; however, I wanted to be sure I stamped it around the star. I felt on this card, it was just as easy to place my star and then stamp my sentiment. Another option would be to place your star down and place it where you’d like it and then stamp around it.
4. Using a StazOn or Archival Black Stamp Pad to add your sentiment on the front of your card!
1. Cut your real red cardstock or glimmer paper star out with your starlight thinlits die and with a stampin dimensional pop it up off your card base.
Tip: With this die you want to use your multipurpose platform or your magnetic platforms only.
2. Cut out your intricate star using the starlight thinlits die.
Tip: To cut this intricate star, you’ll want to use the precision base plate along with your die brush.
3. Cut your silver foil star using your multipurpose platform or your magnetic platforms only.
4. Lastly, add your silver enamel star.
