Hi everyone, Diana here. Today I am sharing one of the Christmas cards that I will be sending out to friends and family this holiday season.
This card has a simple black-and-white color scheme, but glitter along with the intricate die cut really give it a wow factor.
I began my card by stamping the swirl of stars and the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and adhering it to a black card base. I rounded the bottom corners of both my white cardstock and card base with a corner-rounder punch before attaching them together.
TIP: Don’t be afraid to combine stamps from different companies on the same card. I think this sentiment from My Favorite Things compliments the star stamps and dies from Stampin’ Up! perfectly.
Next, I die-cut the stars from silver and black glitter paper and attached them to my card. I used an adhesive dot in the center of the black star to stick it to the silver glitter background. It can be a little tricky getting things to stick to glitter paper, but I’ve found that adhesive dots do the job nicely.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thanksgiving!
Supplies: Whisper white cardstock, Star of Light stamp set, basic black ink pad and Starlight Thinlit Dies from Stampin’ Up!; Black licorice 110# cardstock and Snowfall of Blessings stamp set from My Favorite Things; silver and black glitter cardstock from DCWV.
