I'm here today with a set of four star inlay cards showcasing components from the Simon Says Stamp August 2016 Card Kit. I created a set of four vented star cards with the papers, cardstock, stamps, and die from the kit and other exclusive Simon Says Stamp dies.

To create the background panels for each of the cards, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die and the Vented Star Die die cut from the Tim Holtz Motif Resist papers in the kit to create the inlay panels. Additional star pieces were die cut from the Lipstick Red, white, and Soft Navy cardstock included in the kit using the Vented Star Die. Foam adhesive strips were applied to the back of each panel, completely covering the back of each. I replaced the red, white, and blue cardstock star pieces using the foam adhesive as the adhesive for the inlay design. I love this technique as it allows not only a dimensional panel for the card but provides adhesive for the inlay.
Banners were die cut from white cardstock in the kit using a Basic Banners Die. Greetings from the Seeing Stars Stamp Set from the kit were stamped on each banner using Soft Navy and Lipstick Red Inks. Each banner was adhered under the inlay star design.
Stick It was applied to both sides of a piece of Fun Foam. I removed one side of the backing paper and applied some white cardstock from the kit to the Fun Foam before die cutting the Painted Hello greeting. The other side of Stick It was removed and the dimensional greeting attached to the card front as shown.
To finish each card I die cut a bunch of stars from the navy and red cardstock using Holiday Shapes Dies and the Large Holiday Shapes Dies and scattered them throughout the design.
The foam tape was removed from the back of each panel and then each was attached to a top fold card base.
