Star Card


I saw a lovely star card made by Stacy, a DT member on Sentimental Sundays and I had to make one for a Jewish holiday...this one is my first attempt and I will be refining it more.  On her blog, Stacey shared this link showing a video with the instructions.  Thanks to both of these ladies for sharing their cards and creativity with us. This is my attempt at a star card:

Card shown folded into a Star

Card Partly Opened with 2 points folded back.

 My card was made with white and navy CS's. I used these stamps: Anita's "Jewish Star", PSX "Shalom", and Rubber Stampede "Happy Chanukah" (inside) which I stamp in versamark and embossed with Gold EP. These are some very old stamps.  I embossed the strips of navy for the folds with Cuttlebug EF Divine Swirls. I gold embossed the ones on the outside.  I cut a dove in white CS Cottage Cutz Dove die and placed it   on the center of the card.
 Showing 3 photos to give you an idea of how it looks folded and opened.

This was a fun card to make but was a true challenge to complete.

Challenges to enter:
Card opened and laid flat.

Sentimental Sundays: Shaped Cards with a sentiment
Stamptacular Sunday: Fancy Folds is the challenge. 6 folds in my card.
Do You Stack Up Challenge: Emboss it! Used both dry and heat embossing.
Crafty Caz Weekly Challenge: Emboss it!
Alphabet Challenge: N is for Navy Blue  plus one other color. Hope that bit of green does not disqualify this card?
 

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate all your comments.
