You will need:
- Blue pearl card
- Cream card
- Grey pearl card
- Star of Wonder Create-a-Card Die
- Silver gems
- Silver Just Pearls
- Christmas ribbons
- Foam tape
- Foam pads
- Silver leaves
- Pine cone
Fold the blue card and cut down to 15cm x 20cm, then cut the cream card to 14cm x 18cm. Mat and layer these two pieces together with foam tape for depth.
Die-cut the Star of Wonder two times – once in blue and once in grey.
Cut away the interior design on the grey piece, leaving only the frame behind.
Layer your blue Star of Wonder image on top of your cream card, then add the grey frame on top.
Add gems to your liking. In the sample, gems were added all around the edge of the frame for a fun, glitzy look.
Use the Just Pearls to add extra details to the die-cut image.
Using the Christmas ribbon, silver leaves and pine cone, construct a fun little embellishment to your taste and adhere it to the top corner of your project.
