A Bright & Beautiful Christmas

Bright & Beautiful, Striped Scallop

In case you didn’t know, Christmas is just around the corner.  You really need to be working on those cards in order to get them out on time.  Of course, some people mail their Christmas cards after the 25th.  I have a cousin who does.  I am not sure why, but she does it every year.  Maybe she figures her card will get lost with all the other cards being sent.

I made this Christmas card using a stamp set from the Holiday Catalog called Bright and Beautiful.  This set has matching Star Framelits so you don’t need to cut out any stars.  Your Big Shot will do it for you!  The half circles are actually part of a Thinlit called Striped Scallop.  I love this Thinlits but you have to remember to use waxed paper between the die and the cardstock so the cut cardstock comes out easily.

Hooray For Stars!

Bright & Beautiful

Here is yet another star card.  I can’t help myself.  I just love stars.  This card reminds me of a magician’s trick.  Can you see how the two stars are attached to each other?  It is magical (although not really).  As with any magic trick, there is always a solution.  You just have to figure it out.  In this case, it is very simple.  I cut out the larger star and then used a smaller Star Framelit to cut out the middle.  Then I just put a slice in the Blushing Bride star and hid that slice underneath the Calypso Coral Star.  See?  It only looks like magic.

A Bright and Beautiful Christmas

Bright & Beautiufl

I hate to remind everyone of this again but there are 100 days left before Christmas.  Although that seems like such a scary thought, you don’t have to panic.  There is still a lot of time left to make your Christmas cards.  The Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog is full of holiday stamp sets  There has to be at least one of set for everyone’s tastes.

If you are a customer of mine, you know that one of the requirements I have is that everyone has to make at least one Christmas card and they have to send it to me!  You better start thinking about it!
