Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Christmas Card


Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Nicole's blog. 

I did another bokeh panel and this time I sponged over the stars stencil (from the Hearts and Stars mask). I embossed a piece of vellum card stock in the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder and stapled it to the card....why staples?....because I still haven't worked out a way of adhering vellum without it showing through! :)

The greeting is from Sassy Salutations stamped in Melon Mambo. I embellished with a wooden Snowflake Element and some rhinestones, and then mounted everything on a Kraft card base. The neutral card base really makes the rainbow elements of the card pop!

Here is our sketch for this week...

  1. Love the softness of this card stunning :-)

  2. Beautiful effect with the stars on the Bokeh panel and the stars embossed on the vellum.

  3. Gorgeous. I have been wanting to give the bokeh technique a try and this is the inspiration I needed.
