MC July/13 - Circle Easel Stars Stripes - HB

A lot of challenges inspired this creation and also a friend's birthday coming up soon...

I folded my blue cardstock in half and cut the circle shape through both thicknesses with my EK Success circle cuter to cut a 5" circle. Folded one of the circles for my easel. Cut another blue circle to adhere for the front of the easel.

Cut a white circle slightly smaller and embossed with Crafts Too "Stars" embossing folder and adhered to card front.

Cut an even smaller red circle, stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design) with Versafine  Blue Lagoon and clear embossed. Used an anti static pouch before over stamping the same word with Perfect Medium and embossing with white embossing powder. Adhered to card front.

Stamped a piece of white cardstock using color Box Molding Mat "Thick Thin Stripes" and Versafine "Satin Red" and clear embossing, then die cutting with Sizzix Stars#2 die set. adhered several to edge of front of card.

cut another white circle and stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with the blue and clear embossed. Adhered to card floor. Added dots of Quickie glue pen and Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Regal Red".

Adhered the last star with 3D foam squares to act as my stopper. As a final touch added some white rhinestone stars in 2 sizes.

PS: card will fit into a 5" x 7" envelope.
