But, 4 cards wouldn't be enough for my friends and family card list. So I came up with a simple design using the elements from the kit plus some Real Red (102482) and Very Vanilla (101650) card stock to make a stack of cards. You're going to need more Vanilla (107300) envelopes, too.
-cut the striped card base on the score line, then cut 1/2 inch wide strips.
-adhere the strips under the edges of the stamped mat and adhere it to a Real Red card base
-cut a length of 8 stars from the garland and adhere them to the card front
Note - One striped card base = 22 strips (1/2 in. X 4-1/4 in.) which will make 11 cards
Don't forget to stamp the envelopes!
Do save some of the star garland to make a banner from the "NOEL" pennants.
-measure and mark 7/8 inch from the bottom on each side and 2-1/8 inch on the bottom edge
-cut from the side marks to the centre
-punch holes and thread onto silver ribbon (132137)
-cut lengths of stars from the garland and adhere them to the pennants
Use up the rest of the star garland on some little gift tags.
-trim the corners, adhere a circle of Real Red card stock over the end and punch a hole for a length of ribbon
-adhere stars from garland
