For this April hop we are to choose our favorite spring holiday or occasion.  I'm going to hedge a little on this.  While this is my new favorite spring event, it won't be for the rest of you.  My little Sagan, just turned one and that's one grand event for Grammie!  Of course Sagan had a party designed around the stars and the galaxy.  She's named after Carl Sagan, after all.  Do you remember him?  So here is my card to celebrate the occasion.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by Jo Anne Hewins

The Little Twinkle stamp set and the Twinkle Builder Punch will continue in the new catalog.  You can still save 10% by ordering the bundle before June 3.  The Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper is going to retire. This group was perfect for Sagan's birthday card.

Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White that is 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and fold.  

The Twinkle Twinkle Petal Pink paper is cut to the same size as the front of the card.  That's 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I like to glue this layer.  The glue has just a little give to get the paper in exactly the right place if you work quickly.

The saying is stamped on Shimmery White cardstock in Pool Party.  I used a brand new sneak peek die to cut this out.  It's called the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  Don't you love it!  Just go ahead and put it on your Wish List!  Add this layer to the card with dimensionals.  But first, wrap some of the Silver Metallic Thread around about 4 fingers 4 or 5 times.  Slip that off and adhere to parts of the dimensionals on back.  Move the thread around a little until you are happy with it.  Then turn it over and adhere.

I took another length of the silver thread and added it around the card with about 5 rolled up glue dots here and there.  Stars were cut using the Twinkle Builder Punch and the star die from the Wood Crate Dies.  The Wood Crate Dies are also going to retire.  Add the stars around the thread making sure to hide the rolled up glue dots.  I used stars cut from the Twinkle Twinkle patterned paper, stars from Shimmery White cardstock, Silver Foil, Silver Glimmer Paper, and Sparkle Glimmer Paper.    Finish up with a few Rhinesone Basic Jewels.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Card Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  The saying is from Little Twinkle and stamped in Pool Party.  Add more stars!

I think this is a really cute card.  Since, this just might not be your favorite spring celebration, I have an alternative to offer you.  I think this could be a great graduation card!  Turn it sideways.  Add GRAD in Sparkle Glimmer paper with the Large Letters Dies.  Now decorate with all kinds of stars.  I didn't have time to make one yet, but I might give it a try.  I'll post it if this idea becomes reality.  You could use STAR for lots of other occasions!

Thanks you joining the NC Demo Blog Hop.  Please continue so you can see other celebrations!  Up next is Laurie .  I can't wait!
