Blue & Silver Star Spirit Christmas Card

For today’s card I chose a more traditional colour scheme for a Star themed card featuring blue and silver. I love how this card turned out, the swirly stripe die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits looks so striking in the silver and indigo and really makes the card “pop”.

I took a Whisper White card blank and stamped the front all over with Pool Party using the second smallest star in the Star of Light stamp set.

To create the stripe I took some Silver Glimmer paper and some Island Indigo cardstock and stuck them onto the Multipurpose sheets. I then laid the silver wave across the middle of the card. To fill in the wave take the Island Indigo offcuts from the second die cut and fill in the gaps in the silver wave.

To make the focal point of the card cut one of the largest scalloped ovals in Island Indigo and one of the largest ovals in Whisper White.  Take the small detailed star die and cut out of Silver Foil, stick this to the centre of the Whisper white oval.

Take the Pool Party ink and use the triangular line stamp around the star to create a glow effect. Take the greeting “A little Christmas Spirit brightens all the World” and stamp at the bottom of the oval in Island Indigo.

Adhere the oval to the middle of the card and finish off the card with a pool party enamel star.

To finish off the inside of the card I added some of the smallest stars to the top left and bottom right corners of the card base. Here’s the finished card again:
