CASology Week 237: SCORE

Welcome to Week 237 at CASology!

My first thought when I saw this week's cue word was sports related but, without a need for a sport themed card, I kept on thinking. I'm happy I did as I love the way the star looks on this card and think it will be perfect for an upcoming graduation.

An MFT star die is cut from Tim Holtz metallic paper and scored to give a three dimensional shape. The star is adhered to a navy panel that has been partially embossed with a horizontal stripe embossing folder (you could easily use a score board to create this effect) and then the PTI sentiment is stamped and heat embossed in gold.

The dimesional star is created by scoring five lines and the folding them all in the same direction first. Once the fold line is created, it is easy to go back and fold the short line the opposite way, creating the dimension.
