Star of Light in Glimmering Gold

Hey Stampers!

The Holiday Catalog release is ALMOST HERE! I can hardly wait to show you the series of goodies we have for the holidays. I’m thrilled to preview you what is easily my favorite bundle of the new catalog. The shapes are stunning, the stamps are beautiful and I just couldn’t help myself…this one HAD to sparkle.

I started by stamping my background star dust image in Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla cardstock cut to 4×5.25. I die cut the star frame as the aperture for my card. I then cut the rest of the layers of my star from Very Vanilla and gold foil cardstock.

I find that I have a particularly difficult time adhering delicate shapes to the glimmer cardstock, so I eliminate this issue by gluing a piece of clear cardstock to the back of my Very Vanilla cardstock panel.

I adhere my glimmer paper to my Very Vanilla cardstock base using Fast Fuse and then prep my glimmer paper for dimensionals. Glimmer paper has such a fantastic sparkle that the effect is incredible, but the tradeoff is a TON of glimmer. I use my bone folder to scrape away the excess glitter in a few spots just to make sure the dimensionals have something to stick to.

I assembled the layers of my focal image and then stamped my sentiment in Sahara Sand. I applied a small amount of ink to the edges of my sentiment cut out to make it easier to differentiate from the card base.

That’s it! Here’s my finished card:
