Well as I sat down today to make a card I came across these stars I purchased from a garage sale a couple weeks ago and I thought these are really cool, so I had to make a card using them . The stars made me think of the 4th of July so I then had to dig out some paper with stars on them. That is how I got started with the idea for this handmade card. The stars are very cool. They are called Foil Rimmed Acetate Shapes made by Li’l Davis Designs. I’m not sure where you can get these, like I said I got them at a garage sale. The star paper was just from a variety pack I had bought at Joanne Fabrics. All I did was glue the star paper to the back of two of the stars, the other star I left as is. I picked out the Ruby Red ink. I then dug my color coach out and looked at which shades of blue went with Ruby Red . Not Quite Navy was the answer it gave me . I then stamped the word sparkle. It is from the Stampin Up set called From Warm Words . Then I tore around the word sparkle and with a cotton ball rubbed the edges with the Ruby Red ink. I also placed the stars paper around the middle sparkle. I then placed it all together. So you could write or stamp anything you want in the inside to make it for whatever occasion you want.
