Stars Challenge at JFF



Well stars at Just for Fun had me thinking a lot for sure. I cut out two largish ones exactly the same and stamped on them--with a rubber stamp and ink of course not because I was annoyed with 'em. lol.

What to do then I wonder?

Well! I joined them in a similar way to a sideways easel card so one of the stars stands up. I reckon if I put my thinking cap back on I can make a card shape from this idea. These challenges will have my poor old thinking cap worn out before long.


Just for Von a picture of the back and how I joined the stars together. I'm afraid it is difficult to show the exact way I folded the card but I will be doing a tutorial for a star card when I come up with the concept.

This is my second entry for the stars challenge as I would like to be able to join in the swaps and not sure that the first one would travel well lol.
Just when I thought I knew everything someone mentioned 'Scraplings'--thanks Von for telling me what they are. I had to try one and here it is.
