12 Days of Christmas...Christmas Star

With the first day of December I will be endeavoring to post at least 12 projects for Christmas prior to the 25th, they maybe a Christmas card, gift tag or gift that I have made for special friends and family.

The Christmas Star single stamp set finally arrived at my door this week as it was on back order, but I was just waiting oh so patiently (not) for my postie to delivery it.

I heat embossed the large star in silver and then scored the lines to make it three dimensional and popped it up on some bright and cheerful designer series paper.  A quick clean and simple card that will be great to mass produce.

This card also meets the requirement for the current Just Add Ink Inspirational Challenge #193...Stars

Stamp Set: Christmas Star, Curly Cute
Cardstock: Natural White, Whisper White, Winter Frost Designer Series Paper
Ink: Island Indigo, VersaMark

  1. Love the simple and sweet Christmassy design you've put into this. Embossing makes all the difference eh! Thanks for playing at JAI.

  2. This is lovely, Kathryn. I really like how you've lined up the DSP edge with the star. That beautiful star just steals the show on any card, doesn't it? Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week. x

  3. What a striking way to use the star Kathryn I just love how it partitons off the top. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  4. I was just eyeing this on Pinterest Kathryn, it's really elegant! Lovely layout you have used. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
