After die cutting the star from gray cardstock I heat embossed a sentiment with white powder. I grabbed a scrap of smooth white Bristol paper and combined Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks for the panel behind the star cut out. I also die cut several stars from complimentary cardstock colors and adhered them to the front. One of the navy stars was covered in Glossy Accents. A strand of pretty silver cord was wound around the gray panel before I finally attached it to a white card base.
I think this card design would be good for a congratulations card too. Here's a photo of a variation of the same design.
This time I added a bit of Seedless Preserves to the inked panel and it gives a purple hue when mixed with the blues. I chose a silver ribbon and tied it in a knot. The stitched panel was added to a gray cardstock base.
Hope you have a wonderful starry day!
