I'm not sure this picture can truly capture how beautiful the star on this project is. The Starlight framelit--which coordinate with the Star of Light stamp set--includes several pieces that, when layered together, create the most beautiful finished piece! I used three of the framelits for the centerpiece star and cut each one out of a different paper: silver foil, silver glimmer and dazzling diamonds glimmer. When the pieces were glue together, they create this multi-dimensional star...and then I added rhinestones! So, so pretty! I've begun to ask myself what we used in the "olden days" before framelits???
Step by Step
To complete this project, you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White thick cardstock (card base)
4" x 4-3/4" Night of Navy
3/4" x 5-1/2" Silver Glimmer
3-1/4" x 4" Silver Foil
3-1/4" x 4" Silver Glimmer
2-1/2" x 2-1/2" Dazzling Diamonds glimmer
Scrap Silver Glimmer (for three small stars)
1) Use Big Shot and framelits to cut stars: largest from silver foil, large overlay from silver glimmer and small overlay from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer. Also cut three small stars from silver glimmer. To layer the star pieces, I used the fine-tip glue pen. When dry, I added rhinestones, also using the fine-tip glue (the rhinestones have adhesive on them but it didn't stick very well to the glimmer paper).
2) Stamp the star flourish image and the sentiment on to Night of Navy cardstock using Versamark ink. Use the heat tool and silver embossing powder to heat emboss images.
3) Adhere 3/4" x 5-1/2" silver glimmer on to far left edge of card base. Apply two dabs of adhesive on back side of Night of Navy cardstock on far left edge. Stick one end of silver ribbon to one dab or adhesive, wrap ribbon around front of card and stick other end in to second dab of adhesive. Adhere to card front. Adhere large star to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals (I cut several in half), and small stars with mini glue dots. Tie a small piece of ribbon in a knot over ribbon strip.
