Last week’s card class was a bit different. Not much stamping and lots of patterned paper.
I call this a star card. I know that’s not the name of it. Do you know the name?
This is a very easy card to make. I know it looks a little complex but it isn’t. The kids in my kids’ class did this card. They are aged between 6 and 10. If they can do it so can you. Give it a go.
I just love this DSP, Birthday Basics . It’s retiring so if you would like to use it please order it before the 30th of June so you don’t miss out.
Please see below for instructions on how to make this card.
This is exactly the same design using a different colour scheme and a different pack of DSP. This is Modern Medley.
This is the same design except on a smaller scale. This is using the polka dot parade DSP. Each of these squares are only 3cm x 3cm.
Cut 2 pieces of cardstock at 10.5x 10.5cm
Cut 8 pieces of patterned paper 5x5cm. You could use all different patterns or just 2 like in the picture.
Place the pieces of cardstock on top of each other so they form a star shape. Try to make it as even as possible.
Glue or staple the 2 pieces of cardstock together.
Using your patterned paper lay a piece in the corner of the top piece of cardstock. Only put adhesive on half the square along the diagonal which will be covered by the next piece of paper. If you put adhesive over the whole piece it will be difficult to slip the last piece of paper in once you have completed the spiral.
Keep adhering pieces of paper until you come all the way back to the start.
Embellish the middle of the star as little or as much as you’d like. It helps to cover the centre which can be a little messy.
For the smaller star card cut 2 pieces of cardstock 7cm x 7cm and cut 8 pieces of patterned paper 3cm x 3cm. Repeat the same process as the larger star card.
I hope you enjoyed this. If you’d like to attend one of my classes please let me know so I can book you in.
