Each year I hold a couple card making classes at my church. We take a couple hours out of our hectic schedules and enjoy making two cards. This year’s Christmas card class took place this past Saturday. To get them warmed up, I started with a simple yet stunning card that I’m sharing with you today. Tomorrow you’ll get to see their stepped-up card that features more techniques. I just love the stunning star on this one!

I am trusting I’m not the only person that had completely forgotten to get any Christmas Designer Series Paper yet, so here’s a fun alternative – I searched through all my DSP and knew as soon as I saw the black and white sheet in Whole Lot of Lovely, I would sponge it with Dapper Denim to make it match! Remember that any DSP that has white or light areas can be sponged to match your project!
Here’s a side angle to see that I glued the background die flat to the card and popped the front die cut up with Dimensionals to give it a little pop:
Now get busy making your Christmas cards – it’ll be here before you know it!
