Follow Your Own Star Card -- Craftwell DT

One more day till Friday, my favorite day of the week!  Since I was part of a really fun blog hop yesterday I am posting my Craftwell design team project today.  If you didn't get to check it out yesterday on the Craftwell blog here it is! 

I had this card all finished but still could not find a sentiment that I liked.  So, I searched through some stamps I haven't gotten around to using yet (I'm not the only one that "collects" stamps right?) and this one just jumped out at me.  It's a terrific message and fits great with this card.

-eBosser by Craftwell and magnetic shim
-Embossing folder - Cheetah by Sizzix
-Colorbox Ink in Lilac
-Sizzix Stars Framelits ( 7/8"x3/4", 1 3/4"x1 5/8", 2 5/8"x2 1/2")
-Xyron 5 inch Creative Station;  permenant adhesive refill and laminate refill
-Glitzy Glitter by Stampendous
-Stamp - Follow your own star sentiment from Unity Stamp Co April 2012 Kit of the month
- pop dots and adhesive
-cardstock, black and white
- Tsukineko Memento Ink

First, I embossed a piece of white cardstock with the cheetah embossing folder.  I then lightly applied ink onto the raised areas with a lilac ink pad.  While that was drying, I cut out the stars using the platform combination - A on top, cardstock, star die facing up, magnetic shim, c plate, b plate, d plate. Then I put the stars through my Xyron using the permanent adhesive refill.  I sprinkled glitter to the sticky side of the stars and then ran them through the Xyron again, this time using the 2 sided laminate refill in the Xyron.  After the glitter stars were laminated, I cut off the excess laminate with my scissors.  I adhered the cheetah background onto a black cardstock card and then attached the stars with pop dots.  (If you find the stars aren't sticking with the pop dots, you may need to use a little glue instead).  I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock, cut it out with scissors, adhered it onto black cardstock and cut that out leaving a border and attached it to the bottom right of the card.

Have a great day!
