hat's better than M&Ms, paper and ink?? Not much lol
This is a deceptively easy card with a huge impact. I cut circles from the Brightly Gleaming DSP (2020 mini fall catalogue), which is a carry from last year, as well as the copper from the Brushed Metallic foils. So check your stash to see if you still have some. If you need some DSP, be sure to check out my online store.
The front sentiment is from the Curvy Christmas stamps, and I used the Tree Angle for the inside. The accent stars are from the So Many Stars (retired) stamp set - still one of my favourites.
. Night of Navy - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4
. Very Vanilla - 5 1/4 x 4" (2)
. Dsp - I used Brightly Gleaming
. Very Vanilla scraps for sentiment
The first thing I did, was cut circles from the Brightly Gleaming DSP, using the three largest circles from the Stitched Shapes die collection. If you're a new paper hobbiest and are unsure which way to go with supplies, I suggest the Stitched Shapes set, because of their versatility.
Cut the circles in half using your trimmer and layer - largest on the bottom.
Creating the front
I stamped a little flourish of stars from the retired 'So Many Stars" stamp set in opposing corners of a Very Vanilla piece. Even though this set is retired, it's still one of my favourites.
Emboss this piece, using the Subtle Embossing Folder.
Place your circle elements, as per the picture, centered on your piece of card stock.
I chose my sentiment from the Curvy Christmas stamp set. Because I was making several cards the same, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the same sentiment several times on one sheet and used my trimmer to cut them apart. Don't forget the bling. I used the Champagne Rhinestone Gems.
On the inside panel, I stamped more of the little stars and a small sentiment, in Night of Navy
