Christmas Card Challenge - January - Yellow Star
I chose yellow and black as the color combo for this card. I selected a black card base.
I used the Stampin Up Bright and Beautiful stamp set. I chose the medium sized star and filled it with yellow and outlined in black. I cut it with the corresponding framelit from the Star Framelit set from SU.
I cut the printed star and a corresponding solid card from Summer Sun card stock. I layered the stars onto each other then placed them onto the open card front and used a push pin to make a hole in all layers. I installed the yellow mini brad in the center of the stars and then shifted the yellow star to create the 10 pointed star.
I used the hole in the card front to string some yellow thread through several times to create the star rays as shown. I tied the thread and taped them in place on the inside of the card. The star accent was mounted aligned with the rays and adhered with 3D foam tape. I trimmed the greeting with even borders and used a corner rounder punch on the top right and bottom left hand corners. The greeting was adhered to the bottom right hand corner of the card with 3D foam tape.
I am making fewer cards this year as I used quite a few less this year.
