Stylish Star Christmas Card Class

This weeks Christmas Card Class design. The Stylish Star image is heat embossed inWhite onto Island Indigo Cardstock. The Smoky Slate base has been sponged with Island Indigo and mounted up on dimensionals. I love the Indigo Chevron ribbon in teh bow but have also designed a flatter option for postage.We'll be making 10 cards in 2 different designs- my only dilemma is choosing which will be the second design! Thanks for looking Liz


  1. I really love this card Liz & would like to recreate it myself! What stamp set was used for the star & what size star punch is that? What technique did you use to create the gorgeous muted blues on your white/vanilla cardstock? Thanks for your help & thanks for sharing!!!

  2. HI Christina, thanks for your lovely comments. The Stamp is a retired one which was called Stylish Star and was sold in a short campaign. The image is the same size as the large stars in the "Simply Stars" set (#130889 page 124 of the SU Catalogue). I punched the star out with the retired large star punch (can't believe SU discontinued this fabulous tool- need something more than flowers and circles too!! anyway...). But if you don't have the star punch it is easy enough to cut out with paper snips as they are just straight lines. The card stock is smoky slate cut to 8.5cm x12 cm, and i simply used a sponge and the Island Indigo ink and sponged in a circular motion from the outside in. Hope that helps - any questions just message me, cheers, Liz
