1 Take a 9.5cm x 13cm panel of white card and mask off a 7.5cm x 10cm rectangle. Place the star stencil on top and apply distress ink in the first colour using a blending tool, stencil brush or a sponge. Rotate the stencil and apply another colour to create overlapping stars.
2 Remove the stencil and apply a third colour of ink all over to create a solid background. Remove the masking tape and die cut around the panel to create scalloped edging.
3 Next, create a stitched effect around the stencilled design using a pricking tool or a sewing machine. Cut a slightly larger panel of silver glitter card and adhere to an 11cm x 14cm blank, followed by the stencilled panel.
4 Apply distress ink in Peacock Feathers to a separate piece of white card, creating a faded effect. Die cut the ‘Celebrate’ sentiment from this before adhering to the greeting. Add three silver star brads to finish.
