Lots of Stars!

Sparkle, Shimmer and Shine today and wait...I have not one, but two cards for you! Both cards use the Gold Shimmer Paper, the Stars Framelits Dies and the Many Merry Stars stamp set. Did you know that this stamp set will be gone after January 5th? It's time to act now before it's gone!

Here's my first card which is a "Shaker Card":

All I did was cut the star shape in the front center to create my hole in the Marina Mist Cardstock base. I cut a star frame using the Gold Glimmer paper by using two stars framelits (one inside the other) and I used a cello bag glued to the inside of the card. But before sealing my cello bag, I used the Confetti Stars Punch on the bottom of my card and saved all the little Marina Mist Cardstock stars. I added more stars using the Gold Shimmer Paper and Whisper White Cardstock and the punch. I then added all of the stars to the inside of my cello bag for the "shaker" portion of my project:

I love how the Gold Glimmer Paper peeks through the stars in the border below:

And this is what the card looks like when it is closed. I stamped the star image on Whisper White Cardstock and glued it to the inside panel. The stamped images peek through the cello bag:

And for card #2 I used the same products but opted for Garden Green as my card base:

The stars are stamped and some cut and placed to resemble the reach up to the sky:

Two cards, two different colors and the same products create 2 very nice projects. Don't you agree?
Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
