In Your Words -- Stars Shine Down

Hello!

We're down to the final couple of weeks of Sale-A-Bration and I wanted to share a card that combines three Sale-A-Bration products that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order:  the In Your Words Host stamp set, the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper, and the Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.

When I first saw the In Your Words Sale-A-Bration Host stamp set the sentiment that grabbed me by the heart was "Perhaps the stars are openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy" -- a simple message of comfort and hope.  In today's world, I think we can use all the messages of comfort and hope we can get.  This card was designed for a family member who had two significant losses in just a few days.

This card begins with a panel of doodle-lined patterned paper from the Beautifully Penned Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Basic Black cardstock.  The panels were adhered at the center of the Thick Basic White card front. The "Perhaps the stars are openings..." sentiment was stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The Basic White cardstock was matted with a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock with the right and left edge of the Basic Black cardstock flush with the right and left edges of the Basic White cardstock and the Basic White cardstock centered between the top and bottom edges of the Basic Black cardstock.  The sentiment was adhered to the card front with the right edge of the sentiment flush with the right edge of the Thick Basic White card front and the bottom edge of the Basic Black edge of the sentiment 13/16" above the bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper panel.

The stars and swirls die from the Stitched Stars dies was used to die cut a piece of Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper.  The die cut outline was adhered across the Designer Series Paper panel using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.  One end of the die cut was placed above the top left corner of the sentiment with the opposite end at the upper right corner of the panel.  The 5 solid stars that came out of the die cut were adhered to the Designer Series Paper panel using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive:  the largest in the upper left corner, the next largest in the area just below the die cut at the upper right corner, and the remaining 3 stars to create a visual triangle around the sentiment.

InYourWords_StarsShineDown_Inside

The "With Heartfelt Sympathy" sentiment was stamped at the upper center of the inside sentiment area of the card base using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  A strip of Beautifully Penned Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper was adhered below the sentiment with the right side of the strip flush with the right side of the card base and the bottom edge of the strip 3" above the bottom edge of the card base.

Three stars were die cut using single star dies from the Stitched Stars dies to create 1/4", 3/4", and 1-1/2" stars.  The stars were adhered at the left end of the paper strip using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive. 

InYourWords_StarsShineDown_Envelope

A piece of Beautifully Penned Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap of a Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim away the excess paper using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.
