Creative Nugget: The background paper on the front of the card was cut with the Flourished Star Pattern Die. Double sided paper was used to create the pleated skirt which was stitched onto the bottom of the card. You can find a tutorial for the pleated skirt HERE under the Tutorials Tab on Splitcoaststampers. The sentiment from the fun new Superstar stamp set was embossed and sponged on a panel that was cut with the new Double Stitched Square Dies. The star frame was cut from the Sparkling Stars and new Double Stitched Star Dies. A few other stars cut with the Sparkling Star Dies were covered with Glossy Accents and scattered on the card. Twine was dyed and tied across the pleats to finish the card
For my second sample, a door was created on a Double Display Card to complement the new Key to Happiness stamp set.
Creative Nugget: Rustic papers were impressed with a woodgrain pattern and used to line each of the panels on the Double Display Card. The door panels were cut with the new Squares and Double Stitched Squares Dies and the previously released Rectangles and Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. The sentiment from Key to Happiness and the mat were cut with the Circles and Double Stitched Circles Dies. The new Keys Dies were used to cut all of the keys on the card, some of which were also embossed. Some of the Liquid Platinum embossing powder was rubbed off prior to heating to give a more rustic look.
The double doors open to reveal the inside of the card. Keys were hung from key rings on the side panels. Another sentiment from Key to Happiness was embossed and matted with one of the Layered Lacey Squares. The Gilded Gate was embossed and adorned with some of the Bitty Blossoms and Lovely Leaves.
