Star Celebration


Here's a card for a coworker who has an April Fool's Day birthday - It is VERY easy! The only stamping is the sentiment - the rest is just choosing coordinating papers, then cut-punch-paste!



Note: Finished card size is 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”


Kraft (SU!) 4 1/4” x 11”, scored at 5 1/2"
3/4" x 3"
Naturals Paper Stack patterned paper(DCWV) dark lined pattern 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
and 2" x 2"
circle pattern 3 1/8" x 5 1/2"
tan paper 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
and 2" x 2"
Very Vanilla (SU!) 1/2” x 2”


Early Espresso (SU!)


Starring You (SU!)


Star Nestabilities(Spellbinders)
Grand Calibur (Spellbinders)
Copper Sheeting
Adhesive Transfer Gun 714 (Scotch)
Rotary trimmer with straight blades (Fiskars)
Circle punches - 1 3/4", 1 3/8", and 1" (SU!)



Stamp the sentiment in brown ink on the small vanilla strip.

Clip the ends of the small Kraft strip to make a flag, and mount the vanilla on the Kraft.


Cut and emboss the star from the tan paper, using the largest star Nestabilities die.

Punch a 1 3/4" circle from the dark striped paper, and a 1 3/8" circle from the tan paper.

Punch a 1" circle from the copper sheeting.

Now mount the graduated circle in order, from largest to smallest, in the middle of the star.


The assembly goes quickly at this point:

  • Mount the dark patterned paper on the base
  • Mount the circled patterned paper centered over the dark paper
  • Mount the star stack on the upper portion of the card
  • Mount the sentiment stack on the lower left area of the card

Final Notes

Inside I put another vanilla panel, measuring 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", with a greeting stamped in the same brown ink.

It makes a very nice, masculine card, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by!
