Make Your 4th Sparkle with 3D Foam Stars

I am excited to share my FUN and simple card that I created with our 3D Foam Stars shapes. What a great way to celebrate America’s birthday 🙂

3DFoamStarBurst 6x6 Card by Margie Higuchi

Let’s start with the card panel. I used three different patterned papers to create my 6 x 6″ card. Loved the look and they were scraps left from my Wish You Were Here Travel Book project. I cut/embossed it using my 6 x 6 Matting Basics B Die #8 (the smallest size die is #1) with my Grand Calibur® Machine.

To give the edges a finished look, I inked them with a teal colored ink.

I cut/embossed 6 x 6 Matting Basics B Die #8 with teal cardstock. Adhere this layer with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips on the card base.

Now for the fun part! Center the largest star from our 3D Foam Stars onto the card panel. Then place the second largest star by shifting it slightly to the right so that the top peak of the largest star is in between the peaks of the second star. This creates a star burst look. Repeat this shift for each star. TIP: use all five nesting star sizes for a FULL EFFECT – creates a spectacular focal piece!.

To finish, I sprinkled glitter on top of the entire center piece and brushed off the excess. Added a rhinestone in the center.

I adhered the embellished card panel with Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix Black on top of the teal cardstock. Here’s another look at the finished card…
