When They Saw The Star


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month, it's time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is Lynn McAuley.

Apparently today is National Bring Your Bible to School Day. For today’s CCEE design, use a Bible scripture as the sentiment on your card.

As I wanted to make a Christmas card for today's challenge, I had to go searching my older Christmas cards to find a suitable sentiment for this challenge. I finally found one in a really old MFT Stamps stamp set ... Pure Innocence Precious Little Lamb Upon A Star stamp set. 

As the sentiment I decided to use referred to a star, it was the perfect opportunity to pull out my Creative Craft Products Perfect Flips Star die set and the coordinating stamp set.This is a 5 inch x 7 inch card.

 I used holographic cardstock for the layers of my star and sentiment panel, and silver embossed the stamp and sentiment.

I also die cut additional smaller stars from holographic and white glitter cardstock to add around the card.

I paper pieced the lambs clothing using patterned paper.

When you pull the card open, the star in the centre of the card, flips to show a sentiment on the other side of the star. 

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
