Do you love inspirational carols greeting cards for Christmas? If you’re like me, the traditional carols where we know the words by heart are one of THE best parts of the Christmas season. I don’t know about you, but Christmas carols have been piping out of my iPod for weeks now (much to the dismay of my husband). I think it’s NEVER too early to crank up the holiday tunes and sing along.
So if this sounds like you too, look no further than today’s card for an idea that combines your love of carols with your love of paper crafting. I’ve created it with patterned paper, the detailed star die and bold green and black colours.
Don’tcha think this one would be perfect for the men on your holiday card list.? Do you recognize the sentiment carol? It’s the first two opening lines of the classic We Three Kings (you’ve got the tune whispering in your ear now don’t you?).
I think the mix of fonts on this greeting is absolutely beautiful. Contemporary yet classy at the same time with those two little flourishes. I’ve stamped it in Versamark ink then heat embossed white powder for a shiny raised greeting that just POPS against the black panel.
This detailed star from the Starlights Thinlits is just breathtaking. I cut it in clean and crisp thick Whisper White card stock with the Precision Base Plate. With all those little nooks and crannies, the precision base plate makes cutting it a breeze. And to get all those intricate bits out, the Big Shot Die Brush makes your life SO much easier.
I tried the star first just by itself on the black panel. But it just didn’t have enough OOMPH. Then I added another layer in the Merry Little Christmas designer paper on an Old Olive strip. I picked this pattern since it had diamonds and stars so was a super complement to the star shape itself. I was pretty happy adding just that little touch and didn’t play around any further. Finally just a large rhinestone in the star’s centre is enough to add some sparkle.
Of course our carol isn’t only two lines long. But it would’ve been a mite bit difficult to get the whole song onto a stamp. But what we do have is the final line of the carol to perfectly coordinate and complete the inside of our inspirational carols greeting cards.
I’ll be honest. The ENTIRE reason I bought this set last year when it debuted was because of that gorgeous swoosh. Yup, one image alone was enough to add it to my shopping bag! It just speaks the word “magic” to me. But I tell ya, once I had the whole set, the other images and greetings have seen some ink too! One of my most pinned projects earlier this year was this card also made with the Star of Light set.
