Reach for the Stars
by Penny


Hi friends...Penny here today playing with the awesome new Starlit Breeze die. How cool are the stars with the stitched flourish?!? Put them together with some stenciling and sweet sentiment for a card that is sure to make someone happy. Think new job, promotion, graduation or just because someone did an act of kindness.


Let's make a card:

Cut White card stock 4 x 5.50 inches. Die cut along the left edge with the Starlit Breeze die. 

Place Stars Starry Night stencil over panel. Using a palette knife, smear on Whipped Spackling avoiding the bottom right portion of card front. Let dry.


Stamp Reach for the Stars sentiment using VersaFine Majestic Blue ink. 

Add a thin strip of Navy card stock to left side of card front. 

Using an eyelet punch, make a hole and set white eyelet. Thread Red sheer ribbon, trim ends.

Attach card front to a card base of White card stock trimmed to 4.25 x 11 inches and folded in half.

Ink a few of the leftover stars with Memento Luxe Love Letter, adhere to card and coat with irRESISTible Pico Shimmer. Add dots of Silver Texture Gems for fun.

Penny, I love your design of this card. Can't go wrong with red, white and blue. When I clicked on the die at the bottom of your post, a picture of it came up, but no details, nor price, and no way to order it. What's up?
