Happy *Independence Day*! I had fun creating my cards this year. I decided not to use the brightest red, white or blue, but more muted colors (Ruby Red, Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue), and to add them to a basic, scored Kraft card. If you want to see how I did my "patterned" stars, I have a how-to below. Enjoy your holiday!
Stampin' Up's new Idea Book & Catalog debuts today at Noon Mountain Time. I will update my blog at that time.
Stamp your image onto cardstock. Take care to make the images close together if you want a lot of color on your thin punchout.
Punch out Small Star first.
Carefully place Large Star punch around Small Star. Punch out.
Voila! Your own, custom-patterned star! After this, I blunted the tips of the stars just to be different!
