I am on Day 11 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is the Stampin’ Up!® Stars Are Shining Christmas Card. For the last 10 days my blog has focused on a new holiday card showcasing a new stamp set each day. The challenge ends with tomorrow’s card.

Joy to the World! Today’s card is a simple one. After creating the Layering Diorama with the Peaceful Deer yesterday, I needed an easier card!
Stars Are Shining Christmas Card
- Real Red Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches.
- Basic White CS: two at 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
- Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 1/2 x 4 inches.
- Real Red 3/8 inch Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon: 6 1/2 inches.
Cut the Tidings of Christmas DSP into 2 triangles. Place one triangle over the top of one of the 4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Use a pencil to draw a line at the border of the DSP. Remove the DSP and set aside for later.
Before you start stamping, figure out where you would like the ornaments to be. Place the stamps on the paper. Include the sentiment “Joy to the World” in the lower right-hand corner. Use a pencil to mark the center of the top of each ornament.
You will have three dots where the string for the ornament needs to end. Stamp the sentiment in Memento Ink. Then stamp each of the three strings for the ornaments.
Start by stamping the middle ornament. Add the other two ornaments.
On the other 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS stamp the sentiment “The Stars are Shining Brightly”. Stamp some of the stars on the side. I stamped once, then turned the stamp 180 degrees, applied more Memento Ink, and stamped a second time.
Coloring the Ornaments
I absolutely love the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers but the Stampin’ Write Markers have a finer tip. Color in some of the design with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. Finish up by using the Real Red marker.
Adhere the Tidings of Christmas DSP triangle to the top left corner.
Adhere the Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to the front panel with Mini Glue Dots. Take care on the upper right-hand corner to have the ribbon to the left of the corner. Wrap the ribbon around to the back and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot. Trim the excess off of the top corner ribbon.
Adhere the ornament card piece to the front of the Real Red CS card base. Now adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base.
Now for some Bling! Add some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Add as many as you want! The more, the more sparkle!
Voila! A nice and simple but totally Bling! Stars are Shining Christmas Card! You could really have some fun with this one. Try different colors and patterns of DSP.
