Story Card Sunday: Joy + Stars

Hello all!

It's Story Card Sunday yet again! I think you are going to have a lot of fun making this week's Story Card as it involves playing with some materials other than traditional cardstock. So let's get started!


Like all the Story Cards we feature on Sundays, this one would work great in a pocket page or on a traditional scrapbook page. It would look great on a greeting card.

Start by double cutting a star from cardstock with our Nested Stars DIY Steel Dies. Set the largest die on your piece of paper and smaller one inside it. Use a little decorative tape (or Washi tape) to hold in place as you run it through your die-cut machine.


You'll end up wih two stars that look like this.


Now you are going to want to cut some stars from a non-traditional material. Some materials that would work? Cork paper, wrapping paper and even tissue paper would work swell. I'm going to use corrugated paper.


Cut as many stars as you'd like to use on your Story Card. Once you've got what you need, set your stars aside and pull out some foil.

Using Technique Tuesday's Story Card DIY Steel Dies, cut one base from foil. (By the way, the foil I am using is the foil you'd find in your kitchen!) You'll also want to cut one from cardstock.


Adhere the foil card to the cardstock base card.


Now the real fun begins. You want to add a little color to the foil. Using a broad tip, alcohol-based marker, liberally brush color all over the Story Card.


Pat the color dry with a paper towel.


Adhere the stars to the Story Card.


Finish the Story Card off by adding a few gems and stamping a sentiment on a strip of cardstock. I used a phrase from the Labels by Ali Edwards stamp set.


That's it for this week's Story Card.

I'll be back again next Sunday. Hope to see you then!
