I don't often make window cards, but after seeing Bev's lovely card yesterday, I decided to make one using the large explosion die.
I used the largest die to cut the exploding star slightly off centre. I kept the die cut panel in place and randomly stamped a number of the smaller explosion stamps around the edge; I removed the die cut star and put it safely aside. I adhered a sheet of clear acetate behind the white pane. I die cut a piece of white foam with the largest star, which I attached to the acetate. In my stash, I found a very old sheet of blue mulberry paper which reminded me of a galaxy. After adding some silver foil crystals to the star opening, I closed the panel by adhering the mulberry paper. I edged the whole panel with some blue ink and attached it to the card base. I stamped the word 'wow' on white card, cut it out with the matching die and used dimensional pads to attach it to the card. I finished the front by stamping the little sentiment on card and glued it flat to the front. I added a few dots to show that the sentiment continues inside. On the inside, I cut a panel of blue card onto which I glued the die cut star/explosion. I finished the sentiment by adding the words' Stars for you'. I'm submitting this card to CASology - CAS#299 where the cue word is Marine which suggested shades of blue to me! I'm posting this card to my son.
