We are Summer Olympic fans and we can’t wait for the 2016 Summer Games. I created this fun card to show our support of Team USA using iCraft Easy Cut Adhesive sheets and a variety of Patriotic iCraft Deco Foil™ colors. Here’s how you can create this card too!

Other Supplies: Recollections polka dot vellum paper, My Favorite Things Die-Namics Stacking Stars, My Favorite Things Kraft paper. Echo Park Stickers Misc: Red ribbon
Make card from card base and layer with kraft and vellum. Draw a circle as your guide and use iCraft® Easy Cut Adhesive to die cut stars with the Stacking Stars die. Peel off the back of the iCraft® Easy-Cut Adhesive and place them around the drawn circle. Peel off the top layer and use the iCraft Deco Foil™ Red Transfer Sheets to burnish the color into the stars.
Repeat the process with the Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets in Deep Blue.
Add another layer of smaller stars and burnish with the Deco Foil™ Silver Stars.
To mount my card to the card base, I used the smaller squares from the Therm O Web 3D White Foam Squares Combo Pack. I hid them behind the stars so they would not show thru the vellum paper. I also embossed the kraft cardstock for texture.
Here’s a closer look at the finished wreath of stars. You really can see all the detail in the Deco Foil™ Silver Stars foil well.
