Wondrous gift by Stampin’ Up …

Hi and welcome to my blog. The theme challenge I’ve set this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is “silent night”. My design started with the beautiful greeting from the wondrous gift stamp set …


The greeting was stamped in versamark ink onto vellum then gold heat embossed.


The die-cut star in champagne glimmer paper is so sparkly …


The vellum was wrapped around the card and attached to the back so no adhesive was visible, then a length of gold washi tape added below.


I hope you like my card for this week.  Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We do hope you’ll join us.
