Glory to the Newborn King

I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for ways to make Christmas cards that look good, but are simple to make if you need a few, and are also cost effective to post. I'm resisting the urge to email folks with a festive message, but the postage costs can really take a toll on your purse strings so you need simple but effective. I also like to have some cards reflecting the real Christmas story which led me to this.  As you may have read in my post 'It's Kinda Eclectic' ,  I love the stamp set Kinda Eclectic and have found it so useful. Many of my customers have also fallen in love with it now they have it, but have admitted that in the catalogue it really is an eclectic mix of odd things, but once you see it in use and realise how useful that odd collection of stamps is, you just can't live without it. In this card I've used the large circular star to shine out from the star taken from the Stampin' Up! set - The Newborn King.  A leftover circle of silver glimmer paper and the star is shining brightly with a simply embossed silver sentiment all on a night of navy card base.

You can also see the Nativity scene that is part of this set in my previous post when I joined in the Unique Blog Hop.  I paper pieced to build my simple but traditional Christmas scene.

Happy Sunday!

  1. An interesting post with a lovely card. Had to agree with everything you said about the postage costs, and all it takes is one raised element to take the postage out of the 'regular' price into an overcharge. You solved the problem with this simple but very stunning card. TFS & Happy Sunday.
