Starry & Bright

December 10, 2021

Today’s card is one that I made for my grandson’s for Christmas. It’s kind of hard to make teenage boy cards at Christmas because we have so many flowery stamp sets. I saw this card on Pinterest by Jennifer Cotton which gave me some inspiration. I stamped the greeting from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Basic White card using Cherry Cobbler ink. I embossed the stamped panel using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I attached a piece of the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of the embossed card.

I also attached a narrow strip of the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper (Sale-a-bration Freebie) next to the Designer Series Paper. The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card. I used the Christmas Trimmings Dies to cut a solid star from Soft Succulent, Cherry Cobbler and Evening Evergreen card.

I used another Christimas Trimmings Die to cut the detailed star from Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen card. I attached the detailed Soft Succulent star to the solid Evening Evergreen star and the detailed Evening Evergreen star to the solid Soft Succulent star. I cut the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper using one of the Stitched Stars Dies and attached it to the centre of the solid Cherry Cobbler star. These dies do not match exactly but look perfect together anyway. I attached the Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen stars flat to the card front and the Cherry Cobbler star using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set onto Basic White card using Cherry Cobbler ink. I attached a narrow strip of Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the stamped Basic White card. I attached a narrow strip of Be Dazzling Specialty Paper abutting the top edge of the Designer Series Paper.

I think they turned out great for a couple of young men, so thanks Jennifer for the inspiration.

Bye for now,

Kris
