This is a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK and the first day was warm and sunny! Will it last all three days? I’m hoping it’s a good day today as hubby and I are going to walk through the bluebell woods after I get back from Church! We’ve been promising ourselves we will do this when the bluebells are out ever since we first moved to this house eighteen years ago!
I was planning all week to make Iced Images Half Star Illusion card for today’s video. After I had made my first successful card, which was the black and copper card, I had a lightbulb moment and thought it would make a great Full Star Illusion Card. I knew I wouldn’t have time to make another card before making the video, so I decided to test my idea as I was recording the video. I was so excited when my idea worked and I had created an absolutely stunning card.
If you want to create the Full Star card, you need to create two Half Star cards the same. I don’t think it will work if both halves of the star are put onto one 5″ x 7″ card base but I could be wrong. Making two cards and adhering them together make a good solid card; the card weighs 72g. Here in the UK the thickness of the card makes it a Large Letter but the weight doesn’t add any extra cost.
The products I used for the Calypso Coral Half Star card are Calypso Coral, Basic Black and Basic White Cardstocks together with You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper (retiring). For the sentiment I used Calypso Coral Ink. My original plan for the greeting was to put a white die-cut shape on the back of the cards but obviously this wouldn’t be possible for the Full Star Card. During the video I give two alternative suggestions for providing a space for the greeting.
