This is the third of four cards I made for the Rising Star card swap, using the Night in Bethlehem stamp set. You can see more from the swap here, here and here. I used a sentiment from the stamp set, but no images, just to show how easy it is to make great cards without fancy images. The sentiment on this card actually serves as the image.


Here’s what I made:

Night of Bethlehem stamp set Edgelit Dies, Christmas card, Rising Star swap, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Basic Gray CS cut to  5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
