To The Stars and Back

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Larelyn from Handmade From My Heart.
Today I'm sharing one of PCW's card kit files, Card Basics Stars - Dots.  If you love mats when creating your cards, this set is for you.  It would also be a great resource for page layouts.
Here's my card:

This set comes with two scalloped mats, the dot overlay, 5 different sizes of rectangle mats (I didn't use all of them) and, of course, the stars. I layered some of the stars and popped them up.  I also placed dimensionals under the green scallop mat.   The file was so easy to work with.  The mats in the file are colored so that when you're working with them you can see how the layers are going to stack.  I changed the colors on my Silhouette screen to the card stock colors I was using and it was super simple to see how my finished project would look.  Also included is a jpeg of the completed card.  I always drag the jpeg into my program so that I have a visual of the finished project right there on my screen for reference.

The sentiment is stamped and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder so that it stands out on the patterned paper.  It's from the Superstar set by Jaded Blossom.
