Loves Rubber Stamps December GDT - Merry Christmas or Happy Chanuka

Good Morning Blogging Friends,

Today I am back with another challenge as a Guest Design Team Member for Loves Rubberstamps Challenges.  The sponsor this week for Loves Rubberstamps is Sweet n' Sassy.

Ok, let's get to the challenge, it is Merry Christmas or Happy Chanukah!

I wanted to do something a little bit different than a normal Christmas card for this challenge.  I have been wanting to try a Star Fold Card for some time and I thought this would be great for this challenge. You can find the tutorial here for the Star Fold Card.  It is actually very simple!  So I picked out some double sided Christmas Basic Grey paper from my stash and started scoring and folding.  I choose the Cocoa's Gift image from Sweet 'N Sassy stamps.  He is perfect popping out of the box since you have to also unwrap the card to get into it!  I colored the image with my copics on cryogen paper.  I used red cardstock cut out with Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs dies to put behind the image.

I then attached the image to one side of my card (you can see this better below).  I thought it still looked a little plain so I decided to embellish it a bit more.  I used pearls on the tips of the star and stamped the Merry Christmas image by Magnolia on a circle.  I added a star charm to the circle and hung it from the card with twine.  It was still not just right, so I colored some white ribbon with my G24 copic to match and tied a bow on the corner of it.

Copics used:
Box:  G20, G21, G24, G28
Ribbon:  R24, R29, E07
Mouse: E30, E31, E35
Ears:  R00, R21, R22

For the inside of the card, I simply stamped the sentiment by Stampabilities (Merry Christmas Always). You can see how the image is glued to only one side of the card.
