I had a table at an event about 10 days ago. It was great fun, and while I knew the event would not be hugely busy, I knew those that were going would probably have children with them or even babes in arms so I wanted my ‘make and take’ to be beautiful, yet easy to accomplish while holding a child and a changing bag!
I opted for Bright and Beautiful (a close second to my favourite White Christmas); another gorgeous Christmas set from Stampin’ Up that packs an impressive punch on a card. For this card, I chose soft muted colours of Smoky Slate and Soft Sky.
As you can see from the next workstation photo, I pre-prepared the card base and mat, and then I also prepped the greeting with an embossed star. This is the smallest star in the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and they co-ordinate with the Stars Framelits in our annual catalogue – so I die-cut these and added it to the greeting together with a rhinestone for added sparkle.
So, all the ladies had to do was to stamp the Stars using Smoky Slate and Soft Sky and assemble the card.
It is a quick and easy card to make and a good one to choose for mass production. To speed it up slightly, you could stamp the smallest star in smoky slate rather than heat emboss in silver.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card, and that it has provided some ideas and inspiration for your own Christmas projects. As always, here is a list of the ‘ingredients’ and if you would like to purchase any of them, just click on the item and it will bring you directly to that item in my online shop.
