Little Twinkle Navy Card

Welcome back Kre8tors! Today we are playing with the Little Twinkle Stamp Set for this super adorable and easy card! For as simple as the background is, we are spicing it up with some heat embossing on our sentiment and the heart constellation on the vellum card stock.

I also added some beautiful silver metallic thread behind the sentiment to give it a little more oomph. This card was CASE’d from a pin I saw on Pinterest, however there was no author or attached link.

I love how the Navy on this card compliments the silver accents. It’s so simple, yet stunning at the same time. This stamp set is perfect for all sorts of occasions from a Baby Shower to a Valentine, to an all-purpose card. I love these types of cards for when certain unexpected occasions arise.

I forgot just how much I love heat embossing until I made this card, especially when embossing on vellum. It just looks so elegant and beautiful! What do you think? Do you love heat embossing?

ICS Christmas Card Inspiration

Yay! I am SO excited that it’s December! Winter is one of my all time FAVORITE seasons! Everything is so festive, I love the colder weather, and adore wrapping up in a blanket and enjoying a hot beverage watching movies. COZY is my jam! And with winter comes Christmas! And with Christmas comes Christmas Cards! I’m so excited to be part of the ICS Blog Hop this month because it’s all about Christmas Cards!

I asked my VIP’s in my exclusive customer and team group on Facebook what they would like to see me make. I received so many lovely suggestions, but two really stood out to me. Stars and Layers. I took to Pinterest and came across a lovely card from Trish at Spring Blossom Journey. Her design was lovely and I had to CASE it! My version is very close to hers, though I did have to alter it slightly to use the materials I had on hand.

I loved the idea of using little stars to create a wreath! And I also love how the Festive Farmhouse DSP from the Holiday Catalog really make this card shine! I wasn’t sure how to assemble the wreath at first to get it to look like a nice circle, but I discovered a little secret, which you can learn by watching my video below!

The layers make this card really stand out! I layered Whisper White with Crumb Cake. Typically I only use 1/4″ measurements, and sometimes 1/8″ measurements. However, to achieve the thin border on this card, I used 1/16″ measurements! I know, I know… it’s not the easiest measurement to get, but the Stampin’ Trimmer makes it super easy!

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Card! This is definitely a card that is best handed out in person, or put inside a package. I’m sure it probably *could* be mailed, but it would almost definitely need to be hand canceled. I really enjoy making a variety of cards, and do tend to hand out cards to several individuals, so I really enjoyed making a fun, layered Christmas Card. And I hope you do too!
