I went with a Christmas card for my design project and used one of Stampin' Up!'s single stamps called Wonderful Blessing. I love this stamp!
To create my card, I embossed the main image in white. Then I cut it with the Circle framelits and my Big Shot. Next I layered it on a slightly larger circle of Gold Foil that I also cut with my Circle framelits. They make layering so easy!
At first I was going to layer the circles onto plain Night of Navy card stock but it just needed more. So I heat embossed some gold stars using the little star from Pennant Parade stamp set. I wanted it to look like a clear, starry night in Bethlehem. I also added an embossed piece of whisper white card stock at the bottom to break up the navy blue.
I will be mailing this card so I kept the bulk to a minimum. That is why I also love the new Candy Dots!
