Pop Up Star Card

I don’t know about you, but I find it really difficult to focus on making a card I really don’t like the design of…  That’s what happened to me this week.  I have been making a batch of personalised Christmas cards for a friend, based around cards I have made previously, however I just couldn’t bring myself to re-create this card – I wasn’t entirely happy with the way it turned out the first time; I had an idea in my head and I just couldn’t make it work.  Luckily, my friend was happy to leave me to it….as long as the final card was in West Ham football club colours (sky blue and burgundy).

I was stuck for inspiration – I’ve been so busy recently that I just came to a screeching halt.  Then I saw this card at www.downloadpsds.com and I thought I’d see if I could come up with something similar.

Here’s my card:half cut stars full

I used my Silhouette to create the partially cut star shapes in the sky blue card, then placed some burgundy card behind and added some 3D pads behind the shapes too, to pop them open.

The sentiment was printed directly onto the white cardstock, using the NeoRetroDraw font.

And, the best bit of all, it only took 20 minutes from start to finish!  By far the quickest Christmas card I’ve made this season 🙂
