Lawn Fawn – Star Shape Card Set

Hey there! Happy weekend everyone! I’m up on the blog today with this awesome set of cards today that were inspired by my friend, Jenn Bena’s, video a couple weeks ago. Hers were uber fabulous and although I don’t have all the same goodies she does, I dug in my stash and found some fun things to use instead.

To make these cards I started with a ton of die cutting. Here’s a list to get you going:

  • From the largest of the puffy stars
    • 4 black stars
    • 2 white stars
    • 2 iridescent vellum stars
    • 4 white stars folded in half for the card base – crease line about 3/4 inch below the cut line
  • Take your white and vellum stars and use the puffy cloud borders to cut your clouds. You can get 2 from each star.

From here I actually adhered everything together then took the stars from Upon a Star and heat embossed them in the sky with silver embossing powder. This looked a little plain so I created a cloud mask and splattered the sky with gold and pearl watercolors. I love this now!!!

I stamped, colored and die cut the small fox and bunny from Upon a Star and popped them up with foam tape on the cloudy ground. Last, I pulled out my Lucky Stars sentiments and stamped them on two cards. Then for the other two I split the sentiments from Upon a Star part on the front and the large word inside the cards.

These cards fit in a standard A2 size envelope and mail with a regular stamp. But how much fun would it be to received these fun shaped cards! Such a small change makes a huge impact on your card.

Do you make shaped cards? Share in the comments. I’d love to know.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day.

  1. Hi Amanda.
    I LOVE ❤️ your cards. I haven’t made shaped cards in the past. I was just looking at Lawn Fawn’s Star shaped die because I love your cards this morning on Facebook. I have their hearts. I never thought to use a folded card base in the back. I love this idea and look forward to trying it.
    I love your cards.
