They Are Not Stars

Hello Friends,

I just received a really cool stamp sentiment. It's from the stamp selection over at Verses Rubber Stamps. The verse talks of stars and heaven and love and....... well wait, just click here  and scroll down to QQ0821-F to read the verse. I know you will love this one.

Well since the card speaks of stars, I used my nested stars dies to cut out a star on the right side edge of the panel.I actually went off the edge. Then still using the dies, I cut star shapes out of transparent double sided adhesive. I attached those to the panel and peeled off the protective covering and covered that adhesive shape with a beautiful silvery glitter. Next I stamped the verse on a separate smaller panel in VersaMark, and heat embossed with a silver detail embossing powder. I layered that panel on top of a silver mirror piece of card stock and then attached the verse panel to the card panel. Then I used dimensional foam to mount this larger panel on the front of the card.

The last thing I did was to cut a star adhesive piece and nested it inside that star cutout area.It was then covered with the silvery glitter.

Here is a closer view of that star cut out area on the card.

Notice I added a star shape inside that cut out area.
It's actually attached on the card front base, underneath the card panel.
I love that dimensional effect!!
