S is for Star

I love all the different colored star prints in the "Title Sports" line.  The Football (#1372) paper was a perfect color and print choice to create a home decor project with my grandson in mind.  

I had an idea to use the concept of an old fashioned alphabet flashcard as the base of framed art for Chase's room.  

I designed and printed the flashcard on my printer.  I used some Sizzix star dies to create the stars.  The larger star uses the Football (#1399) from "Sporty Words."  To give the smaller star some dimension I scored each tip of the star, folded along the score lines and then popped it with a PopDot. Once the flashcard was finished, I double mounted it on teal cardstock and more of the "Sporty Words" Football paper.  

I used the scraps from the flashcard framed art for this card....
