Red Gumball 3D Star Christmas

Posted on

Good morning and happy humpday to you! I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of you for stopping by and leaving comments, you propel my creativity to new heights and I really appreciate it! For today’s card I went with some traditional holiday colors. It has sort of a rustic modern country feel to it! 😛 The base of the card is Real Red Card Stock. I took a piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock and used the Woodgrain Background Stamp with Crumb Cake Ink for the background. I cut it a little smaller than usual and flagged the bottom. Then I used some Vellum Card Stock and the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set stamped in Gumball Green for the greeting. The vellum is adhered to the Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon to hide the adhesive and the ribbon is adhered to the back of the Crumb Cake. For a little added detail I punched out some Gumball Green with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and cut the strip in half and used some 2-Way Glue to adhere it to the back of the flagged ends and then mounted the whole thing to the card with SNAIL. I used the Window Frames Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Gumball Green and paper-pierced the edge using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack. The star is cut from a piece of Real Red and I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score from the point to the peak on opposite sides and the creased it up. Some Multipurpose Adhesive is used to hold it to the card. I love the 3 D star and have to come up with a way to make it detach so it could be used an ornament. I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and thank you again for stopping by. Enjoy your day!

  1. Well, JK, you certainly have had a very busy and very beautifully, creative week! As usual just adore your cards. I am going to give the 3d stars a go myself. I think if you stuck two together with the tombo glue it may be able to be used as removable ornament – only if you have a steady glue hand!

    • Thank you Marlene! It’s my therapy! It’s almost cheaper than an actual therapist! LOL! That is a great idea, I was thinking I would like to leave the Window on the back so maybe one on each side? 🙂

  2. Love it, Justin! Where did you get the template for the star! I’d like to CASE this for my Christmas card classes, it is so effective!

  3. Yee haw! What a fun Christmas card and that dimensional star is awesome. As a Texas girl (well, transplanted from New York, anyway…haha!), I can see where that would come in handy for a variety of occasions, as well. I also love the sentiment stamped on vellum. I always forget about using vellum for some reason. Have a great day! 🙂

    • Thanks Anne Marie! I am loving the stars, and they are so easy to make! I forgot about vellum for a while too but I use it a lot now. Thanks for visiting and have an amazing day! 🙂
