Brushed Gold Bright and Beautiful Star Christmas Card

Yesterday I started sharing some of my Christmas cards from classes and today I’d thought I’d share another.  This was my first chance playing with the Brushed Gold cardstock, and let me tell you, it is Fabulous!

I was playing with different ideas when I came up with this card, but in the end, I loved the simplicity of it with lots of pretty touches.

Tips for making this card:

  • Die cut the larger star using the Star Framelits from Stampin’ Up directly from your card base.  Then fill the hole by gluing a piece of pretty cardstock (like this Brushed Gold) to the inside of your card.  It makes it pretty inside and out!

  • Tie around some glitzy baker’s twine and then fray the edges after you knot it to give it a softer touch.
  • Use the Bright & Beautiful stamp set to stamp and cut out with the Star Framelits, a central focus point to layer inside your star cutout in the card base.
  • Add a simple rhinestone to the center of the star and color it with Blendabilities for some subtle sparkle that coordinates!

See, easy peasy!  But lots of shimmer and sparkle.  Oh, and I forgot to mention, the Brushed Gold cardstock is heavier weight than I was used to with cardstock, which makes it great as a layer or even a card base.  Really adds some feel good heft to your cards!
