A Simple Wish by Alison Hall


Hello crafters! It's Alison here today with a set of three simple Christmas cards, using Birgit Koopsen's lovely new scribbled stars.

Here's what I used...

3 Kraft Card Blanks - 4 x 4 ins Square
3 Red Star Gems

Here's what I did...

1. Using the Versamark ink, stamp a different scribbled star in the centre of each of the card blanks. Also, stamp the 'Wish' sentiment from the Lin Brown stamp set in the bottom righthand corner of each card.

2. Apply shabby white embossing enamel to the watermark images, then add some sprinkles of the powder over the cards. Use a heat gun to melt the enamel. Holding the card up, and heating it from below, avoids blowing the loose powder away.

3. Glue a red star gem to the centre of each star with glossy accents. A small red button would work equally well.

4. My cards buckled a bit with the heat, so I placed them between the pages of a thick book overnight.

The embossing enamel has glitter in it, so the stars are lovely and sparkly when they catch the light. Hopefully this shows a bit better in this close up photo.

Wishing you a very creative day,
