Copper & Fresh Fig Star Card

My final project for Stars and Snowflakes week feature the Starlight Thinlits once more but this time I have gone for a very modern look using Copper, Fresh Fig and Very Vanilla. I’ve not used a greeting on this card so it can be used for any occasion throughout the winter season. I think this card would work very well as a party invite or even as a thank you note for all those Christmas gifts.

This was a very quick and simple card to make but I think still have a wow factor because of the gorgeous copper foil used. To make the card first take a piece of Fresh Fig measuring 14.5cm x 8.5cm and take the die with many dots shaped as a star, lay this straight on the cardstock around 0.5cm from one edge, run through the Bigshot and  then repeat at the other side. Line the middle row of dots up with the previous cut to ensure the stars are straight.

Next cut a piece of Copper foil measuring 14.5cm x 9cm and glue behind the Fresh Fig piece of cardstock, taking care not to get adhesive where any of the holes are. Then stick this to a Very Vanilla card base measuring 14.5cm x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm.

For the focal point of the card cut out the star die which has embossed lines on it in Copper foil and the small detailed star in Fresh Fig, use the multi-purpose adhesive sheets to stick them together easily.

Use some Stampin’ Dimensional’s to stick the die cut star to the centre of the card, the outside of the card is now complete.

To finish the inside of the card I stamped two of the medium solid stars from the Star of Light stamp set in Fresh Fig ink.

I just love the simplicity of this design, I think it could be my favourite card off the week.

Join me tomorrow when I’ll be starting Coffee and Cups week.

Happy Stamping
