All Star Dad Card

Hi! Jeanne here today with a star shaped card for Father's Day.

Sizzix Die Cutting Tutorial: All-Star Dad Card by Jeanne Streiff

I started by making a square white card (mine is 5" x 5" - it needs to be a bit bigger than the die you choose). I used the largest star from the 657567 Star Framelits Set and placed it just below the fold in my white card before cutting.

When you remove the die it will look like this. I used 80# cardstock. If you are working with thicker cardstock you may need to run it through the Big Shot twice.

Die cut the same size star from patterned paper.

Add faux stitching to star with a fine black pen. Attach to card.

Die cut mustache (659063 Top Hats & Mustaches Thinlits).

Stamp sentiment (all4Dads from The Stamps of Life) with chocolate ink. Die cut the flag (658696 Banners #2 Framelit set)

Finger fold the mustache in the center and curl it slightly. Attach to card. Add a border on the sentiment flag with a fine black pen. Glue toothpick to card and attach sentiment flag.
