One Card Wonder Wednesday - November 13, 2019 - So Many Stars


Welcome to One Card Wonder Wednesday for this week...OnStage week, eeeek!  I leave tomorrow for OnStage in Atlanta but I couldn't leave you hanging without some Wednesday card inspiration.  So here I am!  I have decided to use the So Many Stars stamp bundle today.  I love this versatile bundle.  It is obviously made for the holidays but I think you can use the dies and the star stamps for other occasions like weddings and birthdays.

I also haven't had a chance to use the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate sheets yet, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.  Die cutting some stars with these sheets will be gorgeous for a card front.  Don't you think?  

Here is the completed card that I came up with.  I was inspired by a card in the Holiday Catalog.  Love having the catalogs to get inspiration from.  Have you done that?  Stampin' UP!® catalogs are a vast library of layouts and projects that we can recreate whenever we want.

 I wanted to go for silver but still wanted traditional red and green as well.  
What do you think of these colors together? 

I don't know about you but the sparkle on this card really makes me happy.  I love the twinkle of glimmer paper in the light.  It really does take me back in time to creating art projects in grade school with glitter and glue!
