I have had this stamp set for a while, and had been stumped as to what I would do with it. So I took a different approach. Instead of planning the card out in my head first, I decided to choose a color scheme, thinking that might prompt some ideas. With the red and gray, I immediately thought of white embossing, so went ahead and embossed the largest star onto a piece of the dark gray card stock. Then I embossed the other two onto a lighter gray panel, slightly smaller than an A2 card. So far, I liked it.
I chose the verse, and then it hit me. I would make the card look like a wrapped package with ribbon wrapped around it! Hence, the red ribbon. I sponged the edges with distress ink, and mounted it onto a red A2 card. A little craft foam to elevate the largest star, and some punched silver foil stars finish off the card.
The stamps are a cling set from Our Daily Bread Designs, His Birth G600 , and the die is Sparkling Stars CSBD79, also from ODBD.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Star light, star bright
Make My Monday Challenge - Happy holidays
Splitcoaster Stampers - Inspiration challenge
