Star of Light Card Set

To form part of a very belated birthday gift for a friend, I decided to make set of Christmas cards because I thought she might find them useful in just a few short weeks!

The box hold four cards and envelopes featuring the Star of Light Bundle

The Star of Light Bundle was the first thing to hit my shopping list when I saw it in the catalogue - it's just so pretty and versatile with so many great greetings!  The starry flourish or "swish" as I like to call it, is particularly versatile and can be used for just about any occasion.  Between the dies and stamps, it's so easy to create an enormous variety of starry decorations that never fail to be pretty.

These are the colours I used, along with Silver:
Stampin Up, #thecraftythinker, Colour Inspiration, Dapper Denim, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, Stampin Up Australia Demonstrator

The silver heat embossing looks much brighter and prettier in person!

To create some dimension, without fiddling with little pieces of foam adhesive, I cut several stars from scrap cardstock and glued them together, placing the decorative star on top.

I used Dapper Denim ink on this one

Silver heat embossing shows up beautifully against Night of Navy cardstock

I made the box in a couple of minutes with the Envelope Punch Board
To create the banner, I first cut out the greeting with the banner from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits, then used the method I describe here to trim the length down to size and also trimmed a little from each long edge.  I then cut another banner in Dapper Denim and trimmed the length to size.

Thank you for visiting!
