Here's a close-up to see the inside of the card better when it's closed. The dotted lines are from SU!'s All in a Row set. I stamped the seal in Basic Brown and colored him with the E13 Light Suntan Copic (my favorite color I've used for the seal so far, really shows the detail so much more with this lighter brown) , outlined with Pale Aqua. I also added the little "whoosh" on the DP above to make the star look like it was falling, to go with the "zoooom" and the little airplanes on the DP.
I made the star frame with a this star piercing template from Gina K, which she is going to be selling in her online store, wait til you see! First I pierced my white star. I counted 7 over each time to make sure I wasn't going too long on any side. Then I carefully trimmed around the dots. Next I wanted a red mat, so I placed my cut white star on top, chose the track outside that and pierced a hole at the end of each point, and 2 holes where the points join together. (Hopefully you can see when you click on it. You can't just make one hole because of the way the plastic meets up.) Then just connect the dots with your scissors cutting just past the inside whole and then go the other way , cutting just past to meet you first cut. A perfect mat!
The shaped mats Gina K will be offering will give you TONS of ways to kick up your cards and take your piercing and projects to another level, I highly recommend them! (and will be working on more ways cool ways for you to use them here! ;)
