Mc Dec/11 - Star Dies 3D - Joy Peace

I came across these 3D stars done with Zentangles on Susan's blog  and liked the 3D effect immediately. So decided to try them using rubber stamping instead. This is the result. Not mailing friendly mind you... unless you make them a lot flatter. Sigh!!

Anyway I like the results, so will make them again. BIG GRIN. I'm using a faux stitching stamp to sew the horizontal borders (Flourishes stamps set #154) together. Really hard to see because it's a brown color which partly blends in to the gold embossing. But in some of the close ups you can see the stitching.

My sparkle comes from the Perfect Pearls mists I used, the silver and gold embossing and the rhinestones along with the glittery ribbon.

The tip: Since the embossing folder I'm using is way smaller than my 8.5" height and it's text words, which would be awkward if put on their side or upside down etc. So created a geometric design by laying the folder at odd angles each time and embossed that way. Looks neat.I could have spliced it for this card, but in some cases I don't have a  horizontal line where a splice could work.

This week's Created By Hand  and Quietfire Creations challenge theme is Stars or Light. I'm also using Quietfire Design rubber - small snowflake and words.

So to see more details and descriptions, click on card image and enjoy.

Love the stars you made and I understand that sigh, I also prefer to make cards that I can put in the mail without costing me an arm and a leg! But the card you made is gorgeous so I hope you have someone to hand deliver it to!
