Star of Peace

Good morning! I'm back again this morning with another card using some of the new Simon Says Stamp Making Spirits Bright release! I used another one of the many galaxy backgrounds I made some time back and had been sitting on my desk just waiting for a home. As soon as I saw this die, I knew it would be the perfect use!

So hard to get great photos of this card - but it is so full of texture in real life! I die cut the larger star from the new Holy Stars Dies from the center of background, and then die cut it again from white fun foam to tuck behind it. I mounted the panel on a white cardbase, adding the foam layer behind the star to pop that section up.  

I then added TWO nice thick layers of Tonic Crystal Glaze, allowing it to dry between layers. This made it SOOO fun and even more 3-dimension!

I heat embossed a sentiment from Stained Glass Greetings on a strip of vellum using Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing powder, then added one of the smaller sentiments from the set heat embossed in white on a thin strip of black cardstock. This allowed me to attach the thin black strip over the vellum with sturdy adhesive, then use that spot to hide the adhesive I used to attach it to the card base, tucking the top of the vellum under the bottom tip of the star.
