A Star-Filled Tribute

Hi everyone,

A quick post of an Any Hero card inspired by this week's OWH Sketch, Sketch #143.

Paper: We R Memory Keeper Red, White & Blue
Punch: the Paper Studio
sSentiment: heat embossed in Distress Ink Black Soot

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of rows of stars.  However, as you can see, the sketch calls for five 0.5-inch rows. Since my smaller star punch was a little wider than that, I went with 3 rows. In addition, I rotated the sketch to go with a pre-written Any Hero card message.

A trick I recently learned -- that everyone else probably already knows :) -- is to cut the small strips and adhere them to the card before cutting them to the "correct" length. This was certainly  much easier than my previous strategy of trying to measure first and then adhere.

Oh, and one more thing, I placed the center star in each row first. Then, I placed the far left and right stars. Lastly, I placed the second and fourth stars -- "eyeballing" them between the end and middle stars.

A simple, but heartfelt, card that I hope will convey gratitude and appreciation to a hero.

Parting Thoughts

Hoping to get to work on a project for the upcoming Craft Show.

Have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin!
