Star Cards--Embossed

This top-fold card was just SO much fun to create.  I used SU's designer paper from last year's paper pack with the polka dots on Old Olive cardstock.  The fir Branches are a Martha Stewart punch (one of my favs) burnished with  Tim Holtz Distress ink (Forest Moss).  The stars are die cut from SU Stars  Framelits 133723.  The largest star, cut from holographic paper that has stars on it is hung from the branches with pearl cotton that I pulled across my  Forest Moss sponge to color slightly. The ribbon trim is gold 1/4 inch ribbon from my stash. The natural textured paper is embossed with  Tim Holtz Christmas and  Thin Ice set  (Sizzix 657059). 

 The stars are die cut from SU gold cardstock using SU Stars Framelits #133723 after they have been stamped and gold embossed using the Bright and Beautiful #135020 stamps for the stars, and SU Gold EP.   The starry edge is a SU  Confetti Stars Punch #135861 and the sentiment is from SU Delightful Dozen #122652

Below are two more cards using the same punch, sentiments, stamps and dies as above.  Some of the stars are cut from star holographic paper.  The Card on the left also tries out the  Stampin Up Mask #133777 with a gold Wink of Stella Brush painting in the stars, also stars from a punch and from the confetti punch are on that star-studded card.

This one uses the SU EF#135817.  There's a lot of texture difference on this card,  which is edged with Starform Gold Outline stickers. The sentiment is a sticker also;  I get all my stickers from Pop-Ups Etc.
