Star of Light Pop and Twist Card

My pop and twist cards were so popular at my recent craft show I just had to make some more.  They are a bit time consuming, but that's probably because I fuss.
I've been wanting to use the Star of Light stamp set with it's coordinating framelits, and chose this opportunity to do so.



The card base is 4 by 12 Night of Navy cardstock scored at 6 to make a top fold card.  It was layered with Dazzling Diamond glimmer paper, followed by a retired DSP with emboss resist angled lines in it.  This was sponged with Night of Navy ink.
The art piece in the center is a Whisper White panel, the edges of which are sponged. The galaxy image was stamped with Night of Navy ink, as well as the stars.
The central image is in 4 layers:  The base image is an emboss resist star.  The image was stamped with Versa Mark on Whisper White card stock and embossed white embossing powder.  Night of Navy ink was sponged over the embossed image and then die cut.  A Night of Navy die cut image was placed on top of that, followed by a smaller dazzling diamond glitter paper star die cut.  On the very top is a small dazzling diamond star.  A rhinestone is in the center.
This 3D star was adhered to the image panel on the galaxy image.
The sentiment, embossed with white embossing powder on Night of Navy cardstock, was punched with the Decorative Label punch.  The punched image was cut in half and adhered to the bottom of the panel.
Dazzling diamonds were added to the small stars and the galaxy image for added bling.

Now, this is the fun part - opening the card.  At my craft show, I watched people's faces when the twist and pop cards were opened.  Their eyes popped, their mouth opened and a gasp of pleasure was emitted.


Each panel consists of the following layers:  Dazzling diamond glimmer paper, Night of Navy sponged DSP, and a Whisper White art piece stamped with one or more of the images from the stamp set.

The sentiment in the upper part is white embossed on Night of Navy and matted with glimmer paper.
In the lower part,  Whisper White was die cut using the Labels die and the top and bottom matted with glimmer paper.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink.

The card is kept closed with a 1" Night of Navy belly band which is kept closed in the back with velcro.  It is decorated with another white embossed image from the stamp set, punched with the 13/8" circle punch and layered with the DSP and glimmer paper.
