Christmas Card Challenge - Feb - Star Layers Ribbon
Here's my card for the challenge. I started with the designer paper. I wanted something with a small enough design to be okay with the size of the star. I chose Celebrate Family Flowers - Confetti - Kaleidoscope Collection by My Mind's Eye. I chose the Sizzix 3 Stars die. I then found a warm dark blue card stock to match the DSP. I had decided that I would chose solid card stock, DSP and silver metallic, cut them all three of them at once and then just swap the stars into 3 groups. I need a light background for my dark stars so I selected a silver pearl card stock which I embossed with the Sizzix Stars and Swirls folder. I trimmed it to leave a small border. I added a red cotton ribbon bow that was just cinched in the middle with a piece of matching thread. This creates less bulk for mailing. I adhered a piece of the same thread to the back of the pearl layer in the top center before I stuck the layer to the card front. I brought it down the card front and taped it down, which will be covered by the star. I layered the 3 stars and pierced the centre with push pin and inserted the tiny red star brad. I mounted the stars to the card front with 3D foam tape. I decided to leave out any type of greeting. Repeating the star in the background worked well.
