Christmas Card featuring Star of Light stamp set and coordinating Starlight Thinlits from Stampin' Up!.  I got this set at the end of last year but didn't get to using it so wanted to try it out.  This card was so easy to make because you stamp directly onto the card and then just need 2 die cuts.  And I just love the results.  Definitely will be using this set for some of my cards this year. And great news - its still available in the 18-19 Annual Catalog.  This is an A2 size card.

Here's another card using the Lovely Floral Embossing folder from Stampin' Up!.  This time I used Stampin' Blend markers to color the embossed vellum and then attached it to the card mat with the colored side down.  You get a softer look where it is colored,  compared to when you place it with the colored side up.  I added my new favorite Happy Birthday sentiment from Blow Out the Candles stamp set, which I cut out using the coordinating Candles and Confetti dies.  This is an A2 size card.
