Wish Upon a Star with Chrissie

Catherine CP Designs, Encouragement, Gallery, Projects

Hi there! Chrissie here and I'm so happy to be able to share this card on Catherine's blog! I used product from the Sunny with a Side of Sparkle Collection.

Chrissie Tobas Star CardTo start, create the card base by trimming a piece of white cardstock to 4.25 x 11 inches, and score at 5.5 inches. Trim another piece of white cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches. This will be the front panel.

Place the Twisted Sunburst stencil onto the panel. Secure it down with Purple Tape (or repositionable tape). Add ink using an ink blending tool. Add Juniper Mist around the edges, blending with All That Jazz, Aquatini and Daydream. Remove stencil.

Add a light layer of All That Jazz ink over the entire panel. This is to soften up the card panel and remove the white space. Flick some water over the panel. Once the water reacts with the ink, it will leave droplets. Allow the panel to dry.

Once it is dry, add a little bit of double sided adhesive (I used Easy Cut Adhesive) to the center. Die cut that area out using the Star Word die. Add more adhesive to Midnight cardstock and die cut the same Star Word die out two more times.

Stamp “Wish Upon A” sentiment from the Starlights stamp set in Midnight ink above the die cut area on the panel. Now it's time to assemble the card. Adhere the panel to the card base. Add both black die cuts where they belong (only the die cut, NOT the negative pieces) and then place the main die cut over them. Offset it very slightly, so a small amount of the black shows through. Make sure to add the negative pieces back onto the card base too.

To finish off the card, add sparkle to the main die cut. I used a Sparkle Marker, but you can use Stickles, Glitter or any other type of shimmer you have!

This is a very simple way to make a die cut the main focus of the card!
