Celebrate – Red Metallic Adhesive Vinyl

Want a fun way to create a foiled stripe start? Simple use of Metallic adhesive vinyl. No need to get messy with fiddly liquid glue when the adhesive vinyl makes it so easy to apply. This process is so easy to use with an occasion, not just for creating this Celebrate metallic striped star card.

Celebrate metallic striped star

Creating the design

Start off by choosing one of the stars from the Nested star file by Alaa’K and insert this into your design space. Duplicate this start as you will need to cut out the star normally later on.

To create the striped appearance to the start, we are going to use the knife tool to ‘cut’ the design up. Make sure you have the knife tool ‘solid’ cut and not ‘outline’ cut, as seen in the top left corner.

 Whilst holding down the ‘Ctrl’ button, draw a line horizontally across the star. Using the ‘ctrl’ button whilst doing this makes sure you draw a straight line. When you release the knife, a small section of the start will have been cut out, but the sections will contain one continuous line. Keep cutting the star up, alternating the amount of space you cut between each section.

Cutting the star

Right-click the start design and ungroup the elements. Next, select each alternate section (the smaller width sections) and delete these from the design.

You will now have created a striped star ready for cutting out.  Trim down a piece of Silhouette red Metallic Adhesive vinyl to just larger than the star and load this onto your mat.

Send the design to cut, but make sure you do a test cut prior to ensure the design will cut – your blade could have dulled since you last cut the vinyl. Weed the excess vinyl using your Silhouette weeding tools, making sure you keep the stripes of the star and remove the negative space.

In addition, cut out the duplicated star we made at the beginning out of  blue card as well as cutting out another start slightly bigger than this. To create that star, either create an offset or use the size handles on the shape to make one bigger. Cut this start out of white card.

Creating the sentiment

Load up the Charlie font in your design space and type out the word celebrate.

Alter the size of the word and when you are happy with this, open the modify panel. It is important to weld these letters before you cut out the design. Otherwise, it will cut out each letter individually as opposed to one single word.

Cut this word out of black cardstock 3 times. In addition, open up the offset panel an create an offset of the word celebrate to cut out of the white card.

Assembling the card

Using glue adhere the 3 ‘celebrate’ die cut words on top of one another for dimension and then adhere the layered die cut on top of the white offset outline die cut.

Next, use Silhouette transfer tape, transfer the red striped metallic vinyl star onto the blue start cut out of cardstock. Burnish the vinyl down and remove the tape.


Foam mount the striped star onto the white offset star for dimension. For the cardbase, fold a piece of A4 white cardstock in half and add some black paint splatter on the front. Once this is dry, foam mount the star pieces onto the front of the card.

Next, using liquid adhesive, adhere the ‘Celebrate’ sentiment on to the star and lastly, embellish with a few colour corresponding sequins.
