I visited my son and his family in July and got the idea for this Christmas Star card. My daughter-in-law had a 3D four-point Star for us to make. She also wanted a Five-Point Star and made a pentagon shape to make the star. This is SO much easier! No math or complicated figuring things out. Just stamp, cut, and assemble with Glue Dots.

1. Cut your Cherry Cobbler card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2. Stamp your sentiment at the bottom of your card front in Gold Ink.
3. Stamp your Christmas Star in Gold ink on Whisper White card stock. Cut out as shown in photo below. Fold as shown in photo below.
4. Use Glue Dots to shape your Christmas Star as shown in photos above and below. I pushed my Paper Snip blades inside to help press against the Glue Dots from underneath.

Merry Christmas Stamping!
These Merry Christmas Star cards were part of my Christmas Stamp a Stack in October. Each person chose their favorite background design to make. Most chose the Silver Glimmer version even if it involved more cutting. Sorry, no Framelits to cut it out for you. You just get to use scissors. 🙂

3a. Stamp your Christmas Star in VersaMark ink onto Always Artichoke card stock.

Mix it well and use just like embossing powder. Melt with your Heat Tool. Cut from star point to star point to form a pentagon shape. Add the Old Olive bow embellishment if desired.

4. Cut your “Merry” using the Expressions Thinlits and your Big Shot. You can choose either Cherry Cobbler card stock or Gold Foil Paper. If using Gold Foil Paper use a newer cutting plate as the lines and dents from you cutting plate can damage the Gold Foil paper and give it a distressed look. Always put Wax Paper between your Expression Thinlits and card stock before cutting. Watch this video if you need more instructions.
5. Position your Christmas Star and Merry as desired. Adhere with Tombow Glue.

Happy Christmas Card Making!
