Star Cards by Heidi

Hello, Heidi here and I get to share a couple of cards I made using the Heidi's stars in Gina's store. What better time to get to use them than the 4th of July!  

This first card is a pocket card, the front piece is raised so you could put a little gift card in it or a little hershey bar.  I tucked a little freedom card and a pinwheel adorned with one of the stars/gems.  Please take note of the little embossing there in the middle, doesn't it look nice?  I never do anything like this and the card just needed a little something so I pulled out my paper crimper .  The little pinwheel is a 2x2 piece of double sided paper, cut into the middle from each corner and then bend every other one into the middle and adhere.  Easy!
The second card is made with 3 different chipboard stars from the set that you will receive.  I painted each of them with crackle paint. Here is a little closer picture of the 3 stars: 
I do hope that you are inspired by these cards, it was alot of fun to make them.  I think that you will find the stars to be quite versatile for holidays, birthday and very masculine as well!
