Star of Light, a quick and easy elegant card

Star of Light Christmas Card

This star is so pretty. Can you see the lines coming out from the middle? This bundle is made up of the Star of Light stamp set and Starlight Thinlits. The lines shooting out from the center of the star are part of this thinlit so the work is all done.

I added a greeting, included in the stamp set. Almost all of the included greetings include a reference to light, bright, star or shine so this set is wonderfully themed.

If you are looking for an elegant, unique stamp set for your Christmas cards this year, definitely consider this set. Without a lot of stamping or a difficult technique, you can make cards everyone on your list will love to receive.


Star of Light by Stampin Up

 I was surprised by how quick this card was to make. The big Sweet Sugarplum inked swirl takes up most of the card front and I just added a few stars in Rich Razzleberry.



Starlight Thinlits

 I cut out a second star from Rich Razzleberry card stock to place behind the Gold Foil Sheet star as a bit of a shadow.

    A lovely card, Dar! And I agree completely, this is the elegant set of the catty. I used this in a workshop this week, and it got rave reviews!

    Both the blue and gold cards are stunning made with the starlite set.
    The gold card is indeed elegant.

    Gail … the finished card is 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and each layer goes down by 1/4″.
    Glimmer Paper – 5-1/4″ x 4″
    Navy – 5″ x 3-3/4″
    White 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″

    Going down by a 1/4″ for each layer is the most popular sizing but you can change up the look of your cards by choosing 1/8″ or 3/8″ for a narrower or wider border. Experiment with these sizes as well as 1/2″ or more to create different cards.
