Congratulations Graduate!

Hello DRU Fans!  
This is America and I'm back with a golden "Congratulations" card for a graduate. 

First, create yourself a card base in the shape of your Star Card Panel die. 
Then- Die-Cut 2 extra panels (these will be used to cover the front and back of your card).
Save some of the smaller die-cut stars from these panel cuts. You will use these as embellishing accents later.

Die-Cut your Congrats word 4 times (2 in plain heavy Cardstock and 2 in Mirror Gold Cardstock).
Also cut 4 stars as shown, then adhere all cuts together and layered as shown on finsihed card.
