Papercraft Star Exec Reveal


This week at Papercraft Star our challenge was to use the letters *S*T*A*R* in our project. My card earlier in the week with the design team incorporated that literally. But I used it a little differently with this card for the executive reveal.

S = support from my fellow crafters
T = tranquility as I craft
A = artistic aspiration
R = results

I made this card for a friend who left my breakfast haunt after 17 or 18 years as a server.  She is a cowgirl, yup a real one, does barrel racing and the whole deal.  I thought this was the perfect paper for her, and while not in STRICT keeping with the dual challenge (masculine) still reflects Levis and boots.

I bent the sentiment stamp from TradeFish Designs into the horseshoe shape.  The Coredinations paper was brown with an aqua core - I sanded it down after putting it through the Cuttlebug.
"Gone" sentiment - TradeFish Designs Missing You
Cardstock - Bazzill, Coredinations
Design Paper - Cosmo Cricket, Creative Imaginations
Embossing Folder - Darice
Die Cuts - Tim Holtz, Sizzix
Cowboy brads - Karen Foster
Twine - stash
Ink - Ranger Distress, Versafine
