I wanted to try my hand at color blocking and since one of the Sale-a-bration freebies is a pack of the In Color Cardstock, I used all 5 of those In Colors in my star burst. The brads, by the way, must be ordered from the catalog.
It is a little hard to tell from the photo but I layered the colors on Whisper White cardstock first. Then I got the bright idea to sew a border around the card which I did. But that made the stripes look like they needed some sewing so I sewed them! I think I should have left well enough alone - no sewing. But by then it was too late.
Each star is die cut with the Big Shot and Stars Bigz die. This is when I miss our star punches because now I have some leftover stars in my ever growing scrap heap. Fortunately stars are popular right now!
My original sentiment was stamped in black directly onto the cardstock stripes with no coloring involved. It didn't show up so I used coordinating markers and colored directly onto the stamp to get the current look. Then I just layered it right over the original. At least it shows up!
