Finally Something Crafty

I finally have a card to share with you today!
 I made these thank you cards for my husbands retirement from serving 30 years in the United States Coast Guard. I had to make quite a few so I wanted them to be fairly simple.
 I used Spellbinders Large Rectangles Nestabilities and my cuttlebug to emboss the card with a rectangle.

 Next I punched a large red star and a small blue star with Spellbinders Star Nestabilities and adhered the blue star to the middle of the red star. I then used a cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss both stars together.
Here is what the stars looked like after spraying them with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water.  After the stars were dry I adhered them to the upper left corner of the embossed rectangle on the card.  I then stamped thank you in red inside the embossed rectangle.
I love how you can just emboss with Spellbinders to frame your sentiment. This is the first time I have done it and really am pleased with the results and how easy it was. Here is a tip: I used a couple of tiny bits of scotch tape to hold the die in place while cutting.
It was also the first time I had layered shaped pieces together and embossed them at once. I really like the look.
If you would like you can share something new you have tried and tell me if it is something you would like to do again.
