Today I am sharing with you a card I made LAST year. It’s one of my favorite cards I’ve made, and since everything (well, almost everything) is still current, I thought I would share it again this year! This card uses the Star of Light stamp set and the Starlight Thinlits Dies. I used different shades of blues, along with silver and white. While I love the traditional colors of red and green for Christmas, I also love this combination as well! I used Dapper Denim cardstock for the base, and Soft Sky for the middle layer. I stamped the large swirl in Soft Sky ink on Whisper White cardstock, then cut a large star out of Dapper Denim and the other piece for the star from Silver Glimmer Paper. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but there is a filigree pattern stamped on the bottom layer of the star. The stamp I used for that is part of the Star of Light stamp set, and coordinates perfectly with the large star die! I stamped three small stars in Versamark ink, and heat embossed them with silver embossing powder. The sentiment is also stamped in Dapper Denim, with a coordinating sentiment on the inside as well (not shown). The star is attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals, to give it just a little height. Once the card was assembled, I added rhinestones to the small stars, as well as a hint of Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the swirl!
This card has a Soft Sky sequin in the middle of the star, which unfortunately is now retired. However, there are lots of other current embellishments that could be used instead! I plan to make a few of these this year, and I plan to use a large rhinestone in the center, colored with Soft Sky Stampin’ Blends! However, if you do not have the Stampin’ Blends markers, a regular rhinestone, Metallic Enamel shape, a pearl, or a current metallic sequin could all easily be substituted for that final embellishment!
Thank you for visiting today! Have a great day!
