What’s better than adding a touch of glitz into your cardmaking? Not a lot, in our opinion! We love to add a bit of fabulous foil to a project – it just lifts the whole design and creates a fun focal point. In this project, you’ll be able to use the Radiating Foil Stamp ‘n’ Cut Dies to create a gorgeous shaker card with a cute congratulations sentiment.
While there are plenty of Radiating Foil Stamp ‘n’ Cut Dies to choose from, this project uses the Superstar design, which features a central star cut out with surrounding beams of foiled light. It’s the perfect design for pairing with shades of gold – give it a go!

Cut two pieces of matt black card. One at 7″ x 7″ and one at 7″ x 8″.
Make a 7″ x 7″ card by scoring the 7″ x 8″ card piece at 1″ and fold. Glue the 7″ x 7″ piece inside the fold to make the card base. Score one side of the card at 3.5″ and fold.
Cut a 6.75″ x 6.75″ mat in gold matt mirror card and glue to the remaining 7″ x 7″ card front with Collall All Purpose Glue.
Cut a 6″ x 6″ mat from matt black card and a 5.75″ x 5.75″ mat from gold glitter card. Glue the glitter card to the black card with the All Purpose Glue, then attach this mat to the card front with foam pads.
Cut a 5″ x 5″ piece of matt black card and foil the full Superstar Radiating Stamp ‘n’ Cut Die set to the centre using gold foil. Keep the star cut out to one side.
Cut star clusters from the Edge’able set to each corner of the foiled piece.
Foil the word die using gold foil on acetate and fix the acetate to the back of the star cut out using red liner tape.
Place shaker foam around the edge of the star cut out and place gold sequins inside. Remove the backing from the shaker foam and cover with a piece of black card. Attach this panel to the card front using shaker foam.
Stamp and emboss the sentiment on to black card, mount on to the gold glitter card and attach to the card front at an angle, as shown in the photo.
Apply Collall All Purpose Glue to the bottom edge of the folded card and attach the card fron to this.
To make the stopper for the card base, cut mats of gold matt mirror and glitter card. Attach to the bottom third of the inner card base with Collall 3D Glue Gel.
Fix the foiled star to the centre of the mats.
