SUO190 The Light of Heaven

Hi Friends!   

It’s time for the #190 “A Favorite Holiday Image” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges!

I decided to pull out the Star of Wonder stamp set with the coordinating Starlight dies and create a Clean and Simple Christmas card reflecting the true meaning of Christmas.  

I love the sentiments as well as the stars in the Star of Wonder stamp set! Christmas is all about the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and the star reminds us that Jesus is the Light of the World!  

Other than the dimensional star die cut, this is technically a one layer card that was very easy to create  and am also participating in the following challenges:

If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team’s samples or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Using the Big Shot™ with the Starlight Thinlits™ and cut out the large scored star from Silver Foil and the smaller ornate star from Whisper White cardstock.  Lightly fold along the score lines of the large star to create dimension and mount the white die cut star to the center.

2). De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the star and scroll images along with the sentiments from Star of Light with Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

3). Trim the panel, mount onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

4). Adhere the die cut/layered star with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to the card front (FYI- I layered several dimensionals together to give the star more height in the center).

5). Add a few Rhinestones to the star centers to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Star of Light

Ink/Mediums: Versamark™

Paper: Whisper White, Extra Thick Whisper White, Night of Navy, Silver Foil
Accessories/Tools: Big Shot™, Starlight Thinlits™, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Rhinestones

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and I hope that you will create your own Stampin’ Up! Only project and join us for our “Favorite Holiday Image” challenge! 

May we all reflect on Jesus this Christmas season and remember that the greatest gift of all is free- Salvation in Christ Alone! Acts 16:31a Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved; Ephesians 2:8-9- For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!!
