UR My Favorite - Cricut

Only one person has ordered off my website so your chances at winning the Art Philosophy cartridge are very good!!!!   Order here by March 31st and don't forget to hit the JOIN button when you do.
Want to try something different with your Cricut shapes?  How about layering them on each other, and I mean really layering them!   We're on page 23 on the Art Philosophy book using the "square 1" key along with the "layer" key and the "shift" key.  I'm using white daisy and sky cardstocks only.  Cut the star at 2 1/2 inches and cut it out 14 times from the sky paper.  Using some adhesive (I used Tombow), glue seven of the stars on top of each other.  Be careful to line it up the best you can. 
Once you're finished cut your background.
White daisy cardstock - 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 folded in half for a card base.
Sky cardstock - 2 strips 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches, one strip 2 1/4 by 4 1/4 inches and one cut 1 inches by 4 1/4 inches.  Distress with sky ink and attach to card base as shown below, leave a one inch space between the two strips on top and your large center strip.  Now glue your stars onto the large center strip, do not distress them.
Use shimmer trim cut at 4 1/4 inches across the largest white space to add a little pizazz.  It's always good to repeat one or two elements on a page so that there is a group of three so here I've added two buttons that also are a silver glitter look on each star.  Using the Whooo's Your Valentine stamp set (and I still have some of these for sale), stamp UR My Favorite on the bottom sky blue strip in outdoor denim ink. 

Here's a side view at how cool these stars look, you could even layer them more (or even less) depending on the look you want.  The photos don't do them justice, these are really neat.
