I have entered this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday 'Stars' Challenge as it turned to be apt for this one too!
The NBUS used in this challenge is the 'stars', which I have only just received - they were on order - and some of the stamps . . . but, more of that later.
All supplies are listed below (as best I can remember some, as they were purchased ages ago - before I used to file things properly, and label everything - sorry, people!
Here is the card
And side view to show the background gold
First, I cut the star out of the front panel and cut it 'wonky' for added interest, then I backed the star with gold foil card and cut a small outline star out of the same card. Then I cut approx six more of the main star - I lost count and stacked them one on top of the other and stamped the top one with stamps from different stamp sets that I purchased ages ago and haven't yet used . . . again, long forgotten! This is from the days, when I used to see things I really, really needed . . . and then, never used! Still do of course, but now I'm more disciplned and file and label it all, so I know exactly who's products they are, and what they are called!
Then I used an alphabet stamp set to stamp the word 'outstanding' in Versamark and gold embossed it with detail gold embossing powder.
I then added the top panel to a textured base card using thin foam tape, stuck the small, gold foil, outline star slightly over the edge of the 'focal' star and raised it up on two, thick foam pads - stacked one on top of the other - to really make it stand out!
This one's dedicated to you Darnell and thanks for everything! Hazel xx
