Another Tonic Sneak Peek - Star Box Die

As soon as I received my Star Box Die, I thought about doing a wreath-style card (I do like this style of card, I made a snowflake wreath card last year).  

Although I wanted to use the die-cuts on a card rather than as a 3D box, I still wanted them to have dimension.  So I trimmed away the flaps that give the box depth (super easy, even if you are scissor-challenged), and scored through each point of the star, folding to give it valleys and hills.

I edged the stars with a glue pen and added some glittery sparkle, and topped each star with a coordinating button.

This pretty Kanban Filigree Bell Ornament Stamp was the perfect partner to my star wreath.  I stamped it in red ink and heat embossed it with red tinsel embossing powder.

The final finishing touches included a lovely aqua satin ribbon bow and some sequins and rhinestones randomly sprinkled around the wreath.  My wreath-shaped card blank was cut using my Cameo Silhouette with the extra long cutting mat.
