Hi all :) I'm back this week with a step by step on how I made this Half Star Card featuring Cowboy Squidgy This is such a fun card that needs no embellishment to look stunning and it folds flat to fit an A7 envelope.
Navy card, white card
Paper (used: Echo Park, Ahoy There)
Scoring board, bone folder, ruler, pencil
Distress oxide ink
Stamp the small character stamp from the Cowboy Squidgy rubber stamp set. Colour, then cut out using a 2.5" stitched circle die. Leaving the die in place, ink the background with Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.
Cut a 2.75" stitched circle from white card and a 3" scalloped circle from navy card. Also cut two small circles (approx 1"). Adhere the image to the white circle and then to the navy scalloped circle. Set aside to work on the card.
For the star card, cut:
Navy card - one each of 5" x 7", 5" x 6", three pieces 1.5" x 6.5"
White card - two pieces 4.75" x 3.25", two pieces 4.75" x 2.75", six pieces 1.25" x 1.25", one piece 6.75" x 4.75"
Paper - two pieces 4.5" x 3", two pieces 4.5" x 2.5", six pieces 1" x 1".
On the 5" x 7" piece of navy card, measure and mark with a pencil at 3.5" across the 7" side, and 2.5" on the 5" side. Make an x where they meet.
Score all three 1.5" x 6.5" pieces at 1.5", 3", 4.5", and 6". Adhere the 1.25" white card squares and the 1" paper square layers to the centre two 1.5" sections.
Fold the star pieces so that the sections with the paper layers are back to back, and the sections without paper are back to back. On the plain card section measure and mark at 0.75". Repeat on on all 3 pieces.
With the glue side facing down, line up the 0.75" pencil mark with the X on the large card panel, keeping it a fraction back from the score line.
Repeat on the other side, but slide the smaller card panel in between before adhering the second one, to ensure there is a channel.
Apply adhesive to the plain card sections, slide the smaller card layer into the channel then open it up and press onto the glue. Repeat on the other side.
Take the remaining star piece and apply adhesive to the plain card section. Line the 0.75" pencil mark up to the 2.5" pencil mark and adhere to the smaller card panel right up to the score line.
Apply adhesive to the other side, push the star piece over so that both paper panels are showing, and press the glued section down firmly.
Flatten down the card and turn over to the back. Stamp the sentiment from Cowboy Squidgy in the centre of the 6.75" x 4.75" piece of white card. Adhere to the back of the card.
Apply adhesive to one half of the circle and adhere to the centre star piece, lining it up beside the centre score line. Repeat with the second 1" circle.
Apply adhesive to the top of both folded circles and adhere the image to them. These ensure the image can move side to side.
