Star of Wonder... Star of Light

This gorgeous color combination was inspired by the soft colors found in the Fancy Frost Suite on pages 36 & 37 of the Holiday Catalog - it's kind of an unexpected color combination for the holidays, but I just love it!!

We start our card with a Smoky Slate card base, then added a layer of Sweet Sugarplum card stock, followed by a layer of Whisper White card stock.

We stamped "Star of Wonder, Star of Night" on the top of our Whisper White piece and "Guide us to thy Perfect Light" on the bottom of this piece in Sweet Sugarplum ink.  We also stamped that gorgeous (and one of the reasons I had to have this stamp set!) swirl of stars on the middle of our Whisper White piece.  All of these sentiments and images can be found in the Star of Light Stamp Set.

Next, we die-cut that beautiful, intricate star using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the Starlight Thinlits.  Make sure to have your Big Shot Die Brush on hand to help remove all of those tiny pieces from the star!

We also die-cut a full Sweet Sugarplum star using the Starlight Thinlits.  Just layer the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Star over the Sweet Sugarplum star and adhere together with your Fine Tip Glue Pen.
