This weeks CASology challenge is 'Clear', which is so handy because I had an idea for a card I've been fiddling around with and it fits the theme perfectly:
The Faceted Star Die also comes with a Solid Star Die and I used that first to die-cut the star from the card front. After die-cutting the Faceted Star from gold mirror CS (from Craft Smith), I carefully glued a piece of acetate to the back of the star. This way I had something to glue the gold Faceted Star onto, so it became 'inlaid'. And it worked like a charm!!
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in gold (from Winnie and Walter 'My Precious') on a strip of white CS and popped up on foam tape. A sprinkling of gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finished it off with some extra sparkle. Always so cool to make a card with a front you can see-through!!
I'm also going to link this to the Stamplorations CAS Card Challenge - January but without the optional twist of using Silver.
The house is sounding quiet now, so I might be able to slip off to bed. Although I'm so behind with all my tv programmes I could watch a few sneaky episodes since I'm still on holiday and don't have to get up early in the morning. That is beginning to sound like a very good idea.......now where did I put that spare bag of Peanut M&M's........
