The large star was created in Kaleidoscope Kreator and then converted to a cutting file in Studio. After it was printed and cut I edged it with blue ink. Then wrapped crotchet thread and gold metallic thread around it. I don't think I've ever wrapped a shape with thread or yarn before. But I like the texture that it adds.
I've always loved the poem that is printed on the smaller star. I used the inner star from a star frame which at one time was a freebie. I filled the star with color. After the sentiment was printed I edged the star with a dark blue Glaze pen. The whole edge is dark. I guess it was reflection from the overhead light that washed a section out in the photo.
I didn't realize that I had a little bit of moisture on a finger when I went to move the star out of my way and the water bleached the ink. I decided to get the finger wet again and randomly touched the star. I was too lazy to print and cut another star and edge with a Glaze pen again. I used foam squares to pop it up on the card.
I bought a pack of star gems years ago at a dollar store never knowing what I was going to do with them. Slowly I've been using them up. Hopefully I'll be lucky and soon find more. ;-) Otherwise I may have to cut stars out of silver card stock and then use transparent embossing powder to make my own.
September is halfway over and dare I mention that the holidays will soon be upon us. Have you started making holiday cards if you give them out?
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
