Oh my, it’s December already! Which means Christmas will be here in a few weeks…eek! One of the things I do for the Holidays is make handmade Christmas cards for family and friends. This Rustic Christmas Star Card is very easy to make!
- White cardstock
- Scrapbook paper
- Embossing machine and folder
- Cricut or downloaded a star template
- White gel pen
- Adhesive tape and foam squares
- Corner rounder punch
- Paper Cutter
First I started by making a basic 5.5 x 8.5 in card using white cardstock. Then I ran the card through my Sizzix Texture Boutique embossing machine using the medium polka dots embossing folder by The Paper Studio. I love the texture embossing gives to cards!
Next I cut a 3 in star using my Cricut machine and the George and Basic Shapes Font Cartridge out of a piece of brown scrapbook paper with white Christmas theme words. I didn’t want to use the star itself, just the paper around it. *You can always download a star template off the internet and print it out if you don’t have a Cricut.
To add some color and dimension to the card, I cut a piece of red scrapbook paper with white Merry Christmas words and taped it where the cut out star is using an adhesive tape runner. Then I used a corner round punch by Ek Success on all four corners of the brown scrapbook paper.
Then I went around the star on the brown paper with a Uni-Ball Signo broad white pen creating a stitched effect. I got this technique from Kristina Werner. She makes amazing cards and has YouTube videos of the cards she makes. Please go check out her website HERE!
I tied a piece of red and white twine around the bottom of the card for extra embellishment. The last thing I did was place the scrapbook paper onto the white cardstock using large foam squares.
I love how this card turned out! Very simple and clean and it looks great! I will be giving this card to someone special this Christmas.
