Lacy Label Card

I made this shape card for my Gypsy class this week.  I used Lacy Labels for the first time.  I really like this cartridge ~ I can see a bunch of mini albums coming out of this cart!!
I put two shadow shapes side by side and welded a rectangle in between them.  I did not realize until I made a test cut that I needed to flip one of the scallops.  I just tapped the right scallop until it was purple and from the Advanced Menu I flipped it sideways.  I re-welded it and it was ready to go.
Here is my mat loaded up with paper to coordinate the cuts ~ love this part!!

I added the inside pieces to the 2nd Layer and cut them out.  I wasn't going to use them until I saw the card put together ~ it was missing something!  I used the Hide Contour feature to hide the circles in the center of the stars.  It made them look like flowers, but I wanted stars.
I trimmed out the negative part and used it as a template.

These stars were tricky to fit in the right place!
Here is the front of the card pre-bling!  I have to say I am really enjoying the bling!!
And here is the finished card.  I added blue rhinestones to the creme stars and light blue rhinestones to the dark blue stars.  They do look a bit like flowers now, but at least they are sparkly!
