The holidays are quickly approaching and I'm starting to think of all of the gifts I need to prepare for neighbors, teachers, and friends. Do you like to make your own gifts and gift holders too? I think it always means a little more when you took the time to make it especially for them. This beautiful Christmas Star stamp makes a gorgeous presentation when combined with the "ready to go" Decorative Window Boxes from the Holiday Catalog.
I inked up the Christmas Star stamp with the Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad (I strongly recommend the new style, firm foam pads for this large, solid, image). Then I stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out. I used the Stampin' Trimmer to score it on all the lines made the stamp. I creased on the lines and then folded valley folds between the star points, and mountain folds on the star points. By doing this simple scoring it really ends up with a great "3D" look! The boxes come with the white decorative circle already printed – so you don't even have to stamp that part! I attached the 3-D star to the box with Glue Dots. Here is another version:
This project shows off the Wonderful Blessing single stamp (which is on sale through December 2nd with this special item #134779). It is embossed in Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder on Crumb Cake and cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. The Tea Lace Paper Doilies add a touch of elegance and the Basic Rhinestones finish it off!
Both the Christmas Star and Wonderful Blessings are from our collection of Single Holiday stamps, which are only available in the clear mount option. Click on the image of the flyer below to see all of the Holiday Single Stamps.
