I recently made some sympathy cards for H.A.N.D.S. - this quotation had been saved in a file for a long time and I was reminded of it when I saw it in another SCSer's signature line (sorry I don't remember who and there may even have been more than one). I used my HP Deskjet 6540 to print it on vellum (the vellum may have been colored; it was from a pack of pastel colored vellum and I ran out of the clear).
So, I wanted the card to have stars so I punched some out (MacGill punch?) from very thick, textured cardstock purchased a long time ago at Michael's. I had matching brads - could not believe it!
I clear-embossed the panel to which the stars and sentiment are attached and edged it with a Krylon (copper or gold?) Leaf Pen. That was layered onto Basic Black which was then adhered to Apricot Appeal.
