Instructions:

  1. Trim 1" off of the bottom face of the card and cover with diamond paper. Glue a 1/4" strip of brown paper along the bottom edge of the diamond paper. Trim a star border sticker and attach it centered on the strip.
  2. Cut a 3" square mat of blue paper and ink the edges. Mat with dark brown paper and glue to the center of the diamond paper. Back the star Dazzles with brown paper and tan vellum. Stack the stickers with foam tape and glue to the center of the mat. Add brown paper behind a smaller star and foam tape to the edge of the mat with small gold stars. Ink the edges of the card.
  3. Inside the card: Cut a 1 1/2" strip of blue paper, a 2" strip of diamond paper and a 1/4" strip of dark brown paper. Glue the strips to the inside bottom of the card.
  4. Trim the remaining piece of star border sticker and add to the brown strip. Back the star Dazzles and stack with foam tape over the diamond paper. Add smaller star stickers around the stacked star. Add a greeting to the label and foam tape below the brown strip. Back a smaller star with brown paper and foam tape to complete the greeting, "Dad, youre a star."
