Merry Christmas Star Card

It’s December and time to get those Christmas cards finished! Here is a fun idea for 3D Foam Stars and embossing powder!

BethPingry Foam Star CardTo create the effect where I used 2 colors of embossing powder on the same star I used a ruler and a craft knife.

First I cut around the star to remove it from the sheet of stars.  Leave it stuck to the liner papers. I carefully sliced through the top liner to cut it, without cutting all the way through the foam (I did in one spot…a light hand and more practice required!)


This created 10 sections on the 5 point star. Carefully peel off the liner on half of the sections, then apply the first color of embossing powder. Heat just until each section is melted. Wipe off excess from the star.

Tip: I like to pour embossing powder into round coffee filters. There’s no static, and it’s  easy to pour the excess back into the container!

Create the project to use this on, and then apply the star. Peel the backing off the star and place it on the project. Don’t stretch or pull apart the nested shapes, this takes a gentle hand, but is very doable. Just don’t rush it!

Thanks for coming by and have a great day!
