My Sheri Crafts Challenge #136: A Star is Born

For My Sheri Crafts Challenge: A Star is Born, wherein our challenge is to use at least 2 stars in your project, I created a simple patriotic card based upon a great Splitcoaststampers tutorial.

I've done partial die cutting before, but Debby's tutorial gives a great written explanation and video, if you prefer a visual method of learning, as well as a great demonstration of water coloring. I decided instead to layer my stars for this go-round. I did my partial die cut and my red/blue layered stars using Spellbinders' star dies, adding Want2Scrap swirl, as well as stars and letters from my stash that I colored with Copics. This card will fit into an A2 envelope as I first cut it on the large side, then measured it to fit my envie after partially die-cutting my star.  As Debby explained in her tutorial, she made her DD a place card using this same technique, which would be fabulous if you were having guests for a 4th of July B-B-Q!!! 

Glad you stopped in today and can't wait to see the results from your "A Star is Born" foray!!!  ;'~)
