Christmas is right around the corner and Stampin’ Up! has released their Holiday Catalog. Once again it is full of great bundles and stamp sets that I just can’t resist. I’m especially in love with the Night In Bethlehem Bundle which you can see at the bottom of this post. It is a beautiful set that centers on what the season is all about, Christ.
I CASE’d this card from StampwithBrian.com , Brian King’s blog. He is a great designer and I often use his designs to get me started on my creative road. This time I wanted just a bit more shine and pizzaz so I added some silver foil paper and metallic stars, along with a little embossing. See measurements and supplies below.
I started with a base of Smoky Slate measuring 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ and 2 2/4″. I then added panels of Silver Foil Paper measuring 5 3/8″ X 4 1/8″ for the larger panel and 2 5/8″ X 4 1/8″ for the smaller panel. On top of that, I added Night of Navy measuring; 5 1/8″ X 3 7/8″ and 2.5″ by 3 7/8″.
Remember: the smaller panel will go up to the inner edge so you only want to decrease the sizes of the panel by half of what you would normally.
Cut two of each “city” design, 2 in smoky slate and 2 in whisper white. Glue down on the large base first, one at a time, then line up on the smaller panel and glue down. Finally, cut the overhanging edge off. I die cut the star from sliver foil paper as well and fixed it with dimensionals.
Figures: I stamped first on VersaMark Ink and then on Night of Navy Ink and used clear embossing powered to get a shiny surface. Die cut them and fix them with dimensional.
Finally, I added the sentiment from Star of Light, 2016 Holiday Catalog.
Here are most of the products I used. Have fun!!
