Star Card

Hello Again,

Here I am spoiling you all with a couple of posts in a row!
This is a very bright, fun card that I’ve made for the Card Crafters Circle’s 4th challenge – Make it Colourful.

This is a new shape for me – a Star Card! It wasn’t as difficult as it looks, just a matter of measuring, cutting and scoring in the right places. I used a template provided to me by my friend Trish, however there are some wonderful tutorials on You Tube.


I had a an absolute blast making this card, using bright funky star paper, another freebie from Australian Simply Cards – I love that Mag! The other paper is from the Kaiser Class of 86 6” paper pad.

The flowers I have made myself, using a tutorial on Valitas Designs & Fresh Folds , where she made some hydrangeas. I altered the design a little, adding a layer and as my heart punch has a scalloped edge to it the flowers that I made look quite different. 

 P1020951 this is the card opened up.

There are so many products on this card – Kaiser organza ribbon is something I found in the bargain bin at Kaiser Robina just before Christmas and treated myself to a couple of cards of all different colours, I topped it with red pearl gems to go with the flower centres.

The Celebrate and Champagne glasses are stamped from an unknown clear stamp, and the glasses coated in Dimensional Magic after sprinkling some clear gems about for bubbles.


The back of the card actually shows through to the front when it is folded shut, so these areas were also covered in stars – Theresa Collins papers I believe.


This is how it looks half open.
P1020962  P1020963

On the front I have stamped an SU sentiment “you are special” and a lovely solid flower from a single cling stamp. I used SU Tangerine Tango ink to go with the cardstock and then sponged over with Daffodil Delight. I left the circle spellbinder in place while I sponged to get a white border.

It’s the first time ever making this Star shape and the Organza ribbon from Kaiser is new from my Christmas haul, so I think I qualify for both the following challenges..
Not to mention…Crafty Anns #56 – Let’s Think Hot… these are pretty Hot colours!

I hope you like my nice bright and very colourful Star Card.

Please do enter my Blog Candy HERE, it would be nice to finish it off before my Birthday in June, when I was hoping to be starting a new blog candy competition to celebrate.
Ciao for now Smile
