This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp class. Lynette, who is a member of the class sends me ideas of cards and projects she wants to make. It is great help to me. Sometimes it is hard to come up with ideas for this class. Most of the ladies have been with me for almost 12 years so I am constantly looking for ideas. Anyway, Lynette sent me a picture of a card that is similar to this one but I don’t know who actually made it or I would give credit to them. I did change it up a bit but the basic design was someone else’s.
To make this card I first cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4.25″ x 11″ and folded it in half. Then I cut 1 1/4″ off the bottom of one side. I wanted to use the gorgeous Designer Series Paper called Feels Like Frost but the class has too many ladies in it and I would have had to purchase four packs for everyone to have a matching piece so I used retired DSP that is similar to Feels Like Frost. I layered this paper over a piece of Silver Foil Paper and attached it to the card base. All the foil sheets that Stampin’ Up!® offers are so beautiful. The also have copper, gold and champagne (a really soft gold). I find it is better to use Multipurpose glue when using the foil sheets.
I cut the stars out using the Stitched Stars dies (shhhh these dies are carrying over into the next mini catalog Yay!) in Silver Foil and Whisper White and then layered them on top of the Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment from So Many Stars in Versamark and embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder. You can save 10% if you purchase the So Many Stars stamp set with the Stitched Stars in a Bundle.
The card came out super shiny which is perfect for Christmas.
Wow! This is a beautiful card – and I love all the shine!! So glad the stars are carrying over.
Oh wow – what a gorgeous card! I just love the silver shine, and those layered stars are fabulous!
