I wanted to do a two color 2 layer Star Burst Card. I first choose my Metallic Silver, and Metallic Gold Papers to punch the tags out of. So you punch out the small tags.
Then you take your large tag punch and go back to the page you punched your small tags out of. Put the large tag over the hole you left in the paper by punching out the small tag. You will have about a 1/8" boarder around the small tag hole. Punch the boarder out with the large tag and you will have the frames of the color you see above in gold and silver.
Then put four together end to end in a cross type shape and glue them down. You will glue them onto a Vellum, or Tissue paper some lighter weight paper. I used spray adhesive. Take the other four and glue them over the other four rotated in a cross diagonally see below for example.
Here is the Silver frames glued on the Dark Paper and the Gold frames on the light Vellum. I took this picture so you can see what it looks like cut out, and before you cut it out.
Now you will cut off the ends of the tags to make the 8 point star shape.
This is what it will look like after you have cut the ends off.
I then took some Shimmerz and painted it on the inside of the framed star and made it really pretty and shimmerized. I did the dark purple with Royal Purple Shimmerz and the lighter Purple with lovely lilac shimmerz. Above you can see the dark purple and silver star shimmerized. I turned it in the light so you can see the sparkle, it is hard to she shimmerz in a photograph straight on.
Here is the lavender and gold star shimmerized above.
Here are both stars. They are very sparkly and shiny from the Metallic Paper and the shimmerz!
Well it is time for me to get up stairs and get the baby ready for bed, so I will leave you with this tonight!!!! I had fun finally doing a challenge card again.
Tomorrow is Marvin's Christmas Party at work, but it is looking like I will be staying home with the kiddo's. They are doing a Murder Mystery Dinner theater, and now Marvin has to be in the Play because one of the male actors could not make it. He has not been in a play since he was in 4th grade so that should be funny!
We never have an easy time finding a baby sitter, and My Good friend/SU down line/fellow design team member/next door neighbor (check out her cool birthday kit for a little girl). Neighbor has a Pack meeting with boy scouts for her middle child Ivan, and my other good friend/SU down line/fellow design team member Emily is helping her MIL after a 3rd back surgery. So it will probably be just Marvin going to the Dinner theater!!!!
Oh well I am getting used to never going anywhere! Good thing I can handle being at home most of the time!!!! LOL!
Have a Stampendous Night!!!
