Hi crafty friends! With Memorial Day past and the 4th of July coming up I've been in the mood to create patriotic projects. The focal point of this card is the star shaker. It's a snap to create using the Cheery Lynn Star Shaker Set. I cut pieces of foam and clear acetate that came in the set to make the shaker, added in the sequins and voila!. I love the star for it's versatility, it's great for birthdays and celebration projects.
I used the Pierced Banners Die to cut the stamped sentiment but modified the shape. To get the fishtail edge on both sides I rolled it halfway through my Big Sister, making sure to only cut the fishtail edge side. I then flipped the die, lining up the pierced detail and rolled it through the machine again cutting the fishtail edge on the other side. The holes make this die easy to line up and recut. This quick modification is anther way to get more out of your die. The solid blue stars are from the Pierced Stars Set and I used a Square Stitch & Cut Tool to get the stitched edges.
