Sparkle - Good Greetings and Bright and Beautiful in Blackberry Bliss

star card blackberry bliss, stars, and sparkle
Sparkle! Blackberry Bliss, stars, and bling - whats not to like?!?
I liked the layout of my Festive Friday card last week... I guess I CASEd myself? Anywho....
The exclusive Hostess gift set Good Greetings is pretty awesome. I am liking it more and more as I use it. Its short and sweet, in a cute casual font, and will cover just about everything with its 19 greetings! If you'd like to host a qualifying party, drop me a line! There are lots of options - some you don't even have to clean house for! ;-)

I used the Bright and Beautiful star again, because well... its bright and beautiful! I stamped it in our Encore Ink in Silver, which I'm really liking over embossing right now - one step and done. I also used a little Pinterest project hack to make it 3D. I scored the back side of the star from each tip to the other side, then folded each score and made it into a 3D star. 3D star framelit scored
Score back side from point to side all around star to create 3D effect
 (You can totally do this with cereal box cardboard to create those super cute decor stars for your house, but using a Star template in the size you want rather than the Framelits, they might be too small)

I preserved the 3D effect by using Stampin' Dimensionals to hold the tips of the star down to my Lucky Stars embossed layer.

I like the silver on the Blackberry Bliss. This layout is pretty simple, and can be modified for quite a few stamp sets and occasions. On this card I used the Modern Label punch layered over the Decorative Label punch, with a sprinkling of the new Frosted Sequins, and a snip of Silver 1/8" Ribbon. 
Fun little card, I may case myself again!! LOL

Happy Crafting!
