I’ve used the same stamp set that I used in my tutorial bundle project to make today’s card – Star of Light. I used 5 images from the stamp set to create my own background. They were stamped in VersaMark ink and gold heat embossed. (I also used an Embossing Buddy to prevent powder sticking where I didn’t want it to.) Simple, but stunning in real life. I just adore the fonts in the sentiments and decided to pair two together (because I couldn’t decide on just one!), And since I was doing a lot of heat embossing, I thought it would be better to use Thick Whisper White for the card front as well as the card base.
Here are the measurements in case you want to recreate this design:
I like to create unusual designs, so I played around with different shapes to accommodate both white heat embossed sentiments, and decided on a scalloped circle cut from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies for the “Merry Christmas” sentiment and a plain strip for the “sub-greeting” (both using Basic Black Cardstock).
I added some Gold Metallic Thread behind the scalloped piece, secured with Tear and Tape, and some of the thin gold washi tape from the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape (from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue) each side of the black strip (although you can’t see the strip on the bottom because of the angle of the photo – sorry!). Lastly, I adhered the black strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed this project. If you would like to follow my blog by email, click here so you don’t miss a single blog post. Next up is the amazingly talented Jacque Williams with some inspiration for you.
