Metallic Stars Holiday Card

Metallic stars are the focal point of this holiday card!  It’s time to play at Festive Friday – home of the Inspo List!

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by World Space Week.  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project.  I used Stars, Metallic and Blue. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Metallic stars are at the front and center of today’s holiday card.  Stitched Stars dies were paired up with Brushed Metallic cardstock to form this stunning focal point.

Although it does take a little time to create, don’t let the layers and the die cuts fool you.  It’s actually an easy card to make.  A few Champagne rhinestones were added to accent the clear embossed sentiment, while a blue gem shows off the lacy star to perfection. I hope you give today’s card a try. Be sure to check out the free tutorial for the step-by-step details on today’s Stitched Stars holiday card.
