Christmas may well be another 313 days away, but it is never too early to start making your own Christmas Cards. This year I'm trying to create lots of CAS (clean & simple) cards and this is one of the designs from my first Christmas Card Stamp A Stack.
The background of the card is created by sponging Stampin' Up!'s Island Indigo Classic Ink over one of the patterns from the absolutely gorgeous Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper. The paper has an embossed design on one side - this one is diagonal stripes, and all you need to do is sponge colour then buff the page lightly with a tissue or soft paper towel. This will remove any excess ink on the raised pattern - in this case the diagonal lines.
The stars can be positioned anywhere on the card when using the Stars Framelits and Magnetic Platform with your Big Shot, and this allows for lots of variation in your designs.
I have rounded the corner edges with the Project Life Corner Punch and raise the Whisper White card front with Stampin' Dimensionals to expose Silver Glimmer Paper underneath. The Faux Stitching is hand drawn with the Island Indigo Stampin' Write Marker
I love this design and look forward to making more of these in a wide range of different colours.
