Star Card with WPC Cutting file and Manual Instructions

We’ve all seen these star cards before.  I’ve found that family and friends love getting cards that are unique so have decided to post one today.  I used the Pazzles software to come up with a WPC cutting file here.  Although I’ve included manual instructions below, the Pazzles will cut and score this project perfectly in just a few seconds.  I’m enclosing a link here to some videos on the Pazzles Inspiration showing some wonderful capabilities including embossing, writing with the pen tool, engraving, piercing, distressing, and even cake decorating! I am actually very excited as I now have the Pazzles cake decorating kit and I’m going to try it out soon!

Pazzles is my first love when it comes to paper crafting.  Many of my projects have used the Pazzles Inspiration in one way or another.  I believe it is a wonderful creative instrument that gives you freedom to make your projects just the right size and just the way you want them.  With that said, I am honored to be part of the 2013 Pazzles Spring/Summer Design Team and would be grateful if you could check out their website.  They have wonderful products, cutting files, forums, tips, and blog posts and they are very warm and supportive.  

This is another unfinished wood box I picked up from Hobby Lobby.  I painted it with chocolate brown paint and then used some Kaiser Craft paper with rich color.  All the deep red flowers were made with the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die.  I’m running low on paper flowers so this die worked great for making paper roses.
