Hello again folks. Hope you're having a lovely day.
I have seen lots of cards around lately that feature stars. I tried cutting one by hand but it wasn't successful so I decided we needed (!) to purchase some star dies. On Monday Jen and I were both home so we paid a visit to Hobbycraft to purchase said dies. When we got there we found lots that we liked and ended up buying three sets!! This is what we got.
We spent a bit more than intended but at least these are an investment and will be used lots ;)
On to my card. I used the star dies as intended and a star border punch from Tonic that I've had a while. I started with a 6 x 6 kraft blank and punched down both edges of the front. I then cut into the top fold to creat two borders to fold back on my central paper.
I cut two strips of the same paper with the punch and stuck them to the inside over my base paper.
This shows it more clearly.
I glued the front strips back, added the stars, some string and a couple of buttons. I then wasn't sure what to do for a sentiment. I eventually stamped a white star with Happy Birthday for the inside and used a rub on for the wish. I think it works ok.
Hope you like it. TTFN Jude xx
