Welcome to the July Sparkles Buddies Christmas challenge!  Heather, our host for challenge #138, chose stars for the theme of this month’s challenge.  When you finish here, I hope you will visit the challenge page to get inspired to play along with this month’s challenge.  The possibilities are endless!

Here’s my starry card:


I find it difficult to part with some retired Stampin’ Up! products. This 2021 Christmas DSP (designer series paper) and the Curvy Christmas stamp set and coordinating dies still remain in my stash. At first, I thought I’d use the DSP because of the stars in the pattern. Then, when I pulled the stamp and die sets, I happily saw the star stamps and decided to use them in my card.


  • The Misty Moonlight base measures 11 by 4-1/4 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent fold.
  • The white layer on the front measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches. The white inside panel measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
  • I trimmed the DSP layer to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches. At this point, I also trimmed a piece to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • The Misty Moonlight cardstock measures 2-1/8 inches at it’s highest point. The cardstock measures 4 inches wide.

What I Did:

  • The process for making the card turned out to be short and sweet.
  • After cropping the Misty Moonlight cardstock with the curvy die, I wiped it down with my embossing buddy, which has returned in the 2022 – 2023 annual catalog! YEAH!
  • Next, I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark, then covered it with white embossing powder, which I heat set with my heat tool.
  • I added dimensionals to the back of this cardstock after I cropped it and heat set the sentiment.
  • Next, I wiped down the DSP with my embossing buddy. Then, I stamped the curvy line of Christmas trees and some of both sizes of the stars using Versamark. After that, I covered it all with white embossing powder and heat set it.
  • I added a Misty Moonlight ribbon wrapped around the cardstock and tied it in a square knot.
  • Then, I turned my attention to the inside of the card. Using Misty Moonlight ink, I stamped the curvy sentiment and line of Christmas trees on the inside panel.
  • All of the layers, with the exception of the cardstock on dimensionals, were adhered using multipurpose liquid glue.
  • Finally, I trimmed the DSP on the envelope flap and punched a 1 inch circle for the envelope seal. As always, my XYRON create-a-sticker made the envelope seal possible.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
