A suspended star....but how??

Hi everyone!
It's time for another new challenge over at CAS-Colours and Sketches and for the month of December we are revisiting some old challenges. This week we are inviting you to create a card using any of our past colour challenges. You can find these in the archives at the top of the challenge page. The only other stipulation is that it must be a Christmas card.

I have decided to use the colours I chose 3 weeks ago, from challenge #99

So here is what I made...

I wanted to do something different this time, so I decided to die cut the star from the card blank as I wanted to 'suspend' a stamped star in the middle. I then paper pierced around the star using the Eclectic Paper Piercing Pack. 

I stamped, heat embossed in gold, and die cut a star from the Many Merry Stars stamp set, and stamped the sentiment onto Vellum Cardstock before cutting it out with my super sharp Paper Snips.

So I bet you're wondering how I suspended the star??? Nope, not acetate! I simply attached the star to the sentiment with Tombow Glue (which is invisible when dry...yay!) I then simply attached either side of the sentiment to either side of the star, again using Tombow. Doesn't it look fab?!

I think I might make a few more of these for my nearest and dearest friends this year as I really enjoyed making it and totally love how it came out! :)

We're looking forward to seeing your entries this week...hopefully it will help you with your last minute Christmas cards!
