Thanks Golden Stars

Create a card front without stamping! This is easy when you have decorative die cuts on hand. I always try to punch out hearts, stars, or other small shapes with the extra small pieces of foil before they go in the trash. Keeping these readily available can help to embellish your project. What do you think? 


   Merry Merlot A-2
   Basic Black 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)
   Gold Metallic 3-1/2 x 4-1/2, 2-1/2 x 1


   Die Cutting

   Flourishing Thinlits Dies
   Well Written Framelits
   Myths & Magic Washi Tape
   Itty Bitty Accents Punch
   Glue Dots
   Fine-Tip Glue Pen

First, I die cut the flourish and sentiment out of Gold Metallic Paper. I punched out stars from the extra pieces on the panel. 

Note, this die is so intricate that the gold metallic paper gets stuck. I tore the die cut in three places while I was removing it. I think I did a fairly decent job putting it back together on the card front. I used the fine-tip glue pen to adhere it.

I then placed a strip of silver washi tape on the bottom of the panel.

Next, I adhered the sentiment right above the strip of washi tape.

I then added a few gold stars and adhered the panel to the Merry Merlot card base.

Lastly, I added the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. I agree, I punch out hearts, stars and other small die cuts from all my paper scraps to use up as much as I can before putting it to the trash. They are great pieces to add to a card front. I love this wonderful leafy die cut you used. I bet this card is super gorgeous up close with that foil paper.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. Yes, I think it is beautiful, and the black definitely adds to its glimmer and beauty. Thank you for stopping by here and commenting. Much appreciated.
