This is Lisa, how is the Christmas Shopping going? Are you Done? Hope so because we sure are running out of time. This week I did get this Christmas Swirl 2 Card finished and wanted to share with you.
I used my Cricut
to help with this card. I wanted to do the back ground as one of the layers filled with stars.
Using your Cricut
is very easy. You just upload your image into your Cricut
program and duplicate images, you can also make the images any size. This works great if you have the digi file. If you would like to do this with a stamp set that you have just stamp out on paper and scan into you computer, you will need to make the file a jep. file for the cricut.
With the big star I covered it with Metallic Lustre
. Now you can get this in different metal colors. I love it. It can also be used on the edge of cards to give it an aged look.
I took the base of the card that has the stars on it and gave it some color. I used Stampin up Green ink pad
. I had to stay lite with this because I want the main focus to be the Rose Gold Star.
Now when I started with the big star I was just going to do in red ink but I changed my mind because it did not stand out enough, so I used the Rose Gold Metallic Lustre,
I think it looks much better and more like a star that you would put on your Christmas Tree.
I took some Gold and White string and wrapped around the star and tied a into a Bow.
I then added the star with Double sided Foam
and put a couple of pearl for embellishment.
I hope you enjoyed this Christmas card, if you have any questions please let me know. I also want to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and be safe. Happy Crafting.
