Handmade Christmas Card

Today I have a Handmade Christmas card that was inspired by a set of ornaments that one of my downlines made for an upcoming craft fair this weekend.

This card uses the Bright and Beautiful Stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I love the color combination of the Blackberry Bliss and Silver.  I would have never thought about putting those two colors together if I hadn’t seen the ornament that my friend made.

The card base is Whisper white cardstock with a layer of Blackberry Bliss.  I then added a layer of silver foil which I embossed with the diagonal striped embossing folder.

The stars are stamped with Blackberry Bliss and cut out with the matching framelits set.  I also cut an additional set of stars with the medium star framelit and the small framelit.  These are layered together and attached with dimensionals to add depth to the card.

Then of course I had to add a little bling to the card with the Rhinestone Jewels.

So which Christmas set is your favorite?

Here are the ornaments that inspired this card.  The colors on these ornaments are beautiful.  The blue  is new in-color Lost Lagoon.  The purple is Blackberry Bliss and the third ornament is Real Red.  I love the combination of the Blackbery Bliss and silver glimmer paper which encouraged me to design this card!



Happy Stamping!
