6/11 Super Star Card

I decided to make a chipboard card today. I was cleaning my office recently and came across some chipboard that I purchased last fall - On Board Garland Greetings. It has some great star images in it that I thought I could just for some 4th of July cards or for some Congratulations cards. This is what I came up with.

My card stock base is a little bigger. This card is 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" and fits into an A-6 envelope. It's a very simple card to make. I sanded the bumps off the chipboard with my block file from SU. To get the bumps off of the inside of the the outline star, I used a regular nail file and it worked just fine. I colored the stars with craft ink: Whisper White and Real Red. I let it dry naturally, but had I been in a hurry, I would have taken a heat gun to it. The corners are from
the photo corner punch. The ribbon is from Michael's. The button from my "stash."

Adhesives are so important to the paper crafter and you really do need several kinds to make your projects come together easily. For example in this project, the outline star is adhered with Mono Multi Glue. The red star is stuck on with a pop up glue dot. The button is adhered with a piece of sticky tape. Other adhesives I keep handy in my drawer are mini glue dots, a two-way glue pen, dimensionals, 3M foam tape, double stick tape and regular old scotch tape.

Supplies I used to create this card:

Stamps: Everyday Flexible Phrases for the " * ", Amazing to Zany
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Craft White, Craft Real Red, Brilliant Blue
Accessories: Chip Board from On Board Garland Greetings, Button, Ribbon, Photo Corner Punch
