Tidings & trimmings recessed star - two cool

Tidings & Trimmings Recessed Star Cards
The star images and dies from the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle are perfect for Christmas, as well as birthdays, 4th of July and patriotic projects. I love the two sizes and intricate versions for creating recessed windows for a cool focal point!

Background Basics—This card begins with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock layer that's embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. It's adhered to an Evening Evergreen card base.

Star Sentiment Layer—I die-cut a Christmas Trimmings star from a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Soft Succulent cardstock. I stamped a Tidings & Trimmings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on the bottom, then tied some Simply Elegant gold cord around the layer.
To stack the recessed layer, I added Dimensionals to the back of the stamped layer, then attached a 3" x 3" piece of Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper to the back of the piece to cover the star window. I added some SEAL Adhesive to the back of the DSP, then mounted the entire thing onto the card front.

Sweet Star—I die-cut a smaller Cherry Cobbler solid star and a small intricate Gold Foil star, layering them onto the card front, sunken down in the recessed area. TIP: Use Liquid Multipurpose Glue with a sponge to lightly apply a thin layer of adhesive on the gold die-cut.
Finishing Touches—I colored a large Rhinestone Jewel with the Dark Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blends Markers and added it to the star center.

Two Cool—I based this card's color combo on the Simply Elegant DSP that I used for the recessed area. The textured background and card base are in Basic Gray. The top layer is in Smoky Slate with a sentiment stamped in Basic Gray ink.

Focal Point—The recessed area of the star is a piece of Simply Elegant DSP. The smaller star is in Basic Gray and is popped up with Dimensionals this time. I topped it off with a plain Rhinestone Jewel center. So elegant!
