How to Create:
Using verbiage paper from Wishes and Dream cut the paper to measure 6” x 12”. (make sure the cut is made with the wording oriented in the proper direction and silver stars to run along right side after fold is made) Fold in half.
Using vellum from Celebrations Vellum packet, trim down slightly and mount using Frosted Splits on the Dark Silver Shimmery paper. Trim leaving just a small edge and mount on White Card Stock. Trim leaving just a small edge and mount on Light Silver Shimmery paper.
Open 6” x 12” paper and on left inside lightly draw with pencil the opening. The opening is 2-1/2” x 4-1/2”. Your box should be 1/2” from the top and 3/4” from each side. Using a craft knife, cut out.
Using StoryBook Creator Plus Software, open up a new project …under Local Printer click> 8-1/2" by 11" portrait. Name project and screen will open to a blank page.
Using your margins at the top and left create a text box that is 2” x 5”. Place box 1” from left margin and mid way down page (you will eventually be cutting this paper out to measure 6 x 6). Type verbiage that you would like on card. For this card the verbiage reads: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. - Mark Twain"
Next make another text box and place further down the page and type Congratulations. (this will be cut out and placed behind black star frame sticker). Cut Gray Star paper to 8-1/2” x 12”, place in printer and print. Next measure down from verbiage 1/2” and that will be the bottom of your cut. Using that point measure up 6”. Find middle of text and measure out on both sides 3”, this will give you your 6” x 6” cut for inside of card, cut out.
Using Disney Magic Maker, punch a star in top right corner. Using Precision Point Adhesive, glue a small square of Black Cardstock behind stars and mount on right inside of card. Close card and using foam squares, adhere vellum mounted square in middle of opening. Using Disney Magic Maker, punch a star in the bottom right corner of front of card, and place Black Cardstock behind stars same as above directions.
Using leftover Grey Star paper and tearing tool, tear a small triangle to fit in the bottom left inside of card and punch star. If star does not line up with Black Cardstock repeat above step for triangle. With the Galaxy Micro Maker, punch stars using various Silver Shimmery papers from the Wishes and Dreams kit, glue to bottom left inside of card, tucking a few stars in behind tear of triangle piece.
Next place Black Star Frame Sticker on Black Cardstock and cut out, trim out middle. Center over the verbiage “Congratulations” and lightly draw guidelines to trim out word, Congratulations. Cut out word. Center and mount word on lower portion of the front of card. Using foam squares, place frame centered over word. Tuck and glue small piece of ribbon behind Star Frame. Using Black Round Tip Pen, run along all edges of card and opening.
