Star of Light Christmas Card

Star of Light Christmas Card

I’m so happy that Mint Macaron returned so I could use it for this Star of Light Christmas Card with Silver Glimmer Paper!  The Basic Gray layer does an excellent job of grounding the glimmering star.

 

  1. Cut Mnt Macaron Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Basic Gray Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.
    1. Attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5″ x 3-3/4″.
    1. Use Basic Gray Classic Ink to stamp the greeting near the bottom of the layer.
    2. Use Mint Macaron Classic Ink to stamp the swirl on the front.
  4. Emboss with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.
    1. Attach over the Basic Gray Cardstock layer with Snail Adhesive.
  5. Use the Starlight Thinlits with the Big Shot to cut out the Silver Glimmer star and the Mint Macaron star.
    1. Attach the Silver Glimmer star with Snail Adhesive.
    2. Attach the Mint Macaron star with Liquid Glue because Snail Adhesive will not work for this application.
  6. Embellish with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

Silver Foil with Subtle Embossing Folder

Silver Foil with Subtle Embossing Folder

You can see that the background layer certainly pops when using Silver Foil with Subtle Embossing Folder!  I love this embossing folder and the “Subtle” effect it has on cardstock but was amazed at how beautiful it looks when used on silver foil cardstock!!  What do you think?

Here’s how I made it:

  1. Cut Garden Green Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Silver Foil at 5-1/4″ x 4″.
    1. Use the Big Shot and the Subtle Embossing Folder to emboss.
    2. Attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut Garden Green Cardstock at 3″ x 3″.  Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″.  Use Garden Green Classic Ink to stamp the wreath in the centre of the Whisper White Cardstock.  Use Real Red Classic Ink to stamp the greeting in the centre of the wreath.  Attach over the Garden Green Cardstock layer with Snail Adhesive.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach this completed layer to the Silver Foil layer.
  4. Cut Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon, tie a bow and attach to the wreath with a Mini Glue Dot.
