Be The Star You Are Card
By Susan Cobb
Designer’s Tip: I covered the front of this Side-Step card with brightly colored patterned paper, and used the paper patterns to create the remaining pieces. They contrast well together for a fun look.
- Front: Cover the front side, back riser, and front riser of the side step die-cut card with green textured paper, trimming edges evenly with the card. Use the patterns to cut a front side piece from Honeysuckle pink/black patterned paper, a back riser piece from red tiny floral paper, and a front riser piece from Honeysuckle black/pink/red/green floral paper. Ink the edges of each piece with black ink and glue in place on the card. Cut a 6”x3/4” red tiny honeycomb paper and mat on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Glue across the bottom of the card.
- Place the Star You Are Dazzles™ large star with “SHINE” at the center on black cardstock. Trim evenly around the edges. Foam tape centered on the upper left portion of the card. Back the 1 3/4" star on black cardstock in the same manner and foam tape on the card as shown. Cut a 6”x1/2” black cardstock and place the Dazzles™ border centered on it. Glue centered on the red tiny honeycomb strip and trim sides evenly.
- Back remaining stars with patterned paper or black cardstock and trim edges evenly. Add to the card as shown. Use the Tiny Tags & Little Labels Squared Tag E to trace a tag on red tiny flowers paper. Remove the template and cut it out. Mat on black cardstock with thin borders. Place “Be the star you are” centered on the tag. Glue angled on the left side of the card as shown. Use 3/4" wide black crepe ribbon to tie a bow. Zot™ the bow on the edge of the tag as shown. Add Bling.
- Use the pattern to cut an inside piece from green textured paper. Ink the edges black. Cut a 6”x1” Honeysuckle black/pink/red/green floral paper and mat long sides on Honeysuckle pink/black patterned paper. Glue even with the bottom edge of the green paper, trimming sides evenly. Glue on the inside of the card.
- Trace a Bracket Label D shape on tiny red floral paper. Cut it out and mat on black with thin borders. Write or computer print “Dream” centered near the top, and “Believe” centered near the bottom of the label. Place Dazzles™ “WISH” on the center and stars near the words as shown. Back more stars on black cardstock as before. Glue near the label. Zot™ knotted ribbon in place and add Bling on stars as shown.
