Good morning! I hope you’re having a great weekend! The baby shower yesterday was very nice – everyone had a great time! My desserts were a hit and – most critically! – I re-found a maple recipe that had been a favorite a few “events” back. I thought I’d used a “maple” recipe – and had NOT been able to find it to re-create it. It turns out – I had MODIFIED a recipe – without annotating the mods. I have remedied that! To quote a famous literary figure – “As God is my Witness, I will NEVER lose that recipe again!” Okay – maybe not a DIRECT quote… 🤷♀️🤷♀️😂
My card today is one that may surprise you. Not cuz it’s all that surprising in and of itself – but because it came from ME!! I used the Night Divine and Stars at Night Bundles to make a clean, simple and GORGEOUS Christmas card – one that’s perfect for making multiples! Take a look-see:
I started by stamping the Night Divine sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink near the bottom of a Basic White panel.
When it had dried, I embossed it in the Stars at Night Hybrid Embossing Folder.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat.
Using the camel die in the Night Divine set, I cut out three camels – one each in Basic Black, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.
Starting with the Smoky Slate die cut camel – I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue. Then came the Basic Gray and finally the Basic Black camels.
Using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals – I adhered the matted panel to a Silver Foil mat. Note: in the video, I used Smoky Slate cardstock for this mat – and it looks great! So…you can make that modification easy peasy if you like! 🙂
For the inside, I stamped the Stars at Night stars in Smoky Slate on a Basic White panel.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhere the panel to a Basic Black AND a Silver Foil (or Smoky Slate!) mat, and into the Thick White Card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Smoky Slate Stars at Night stars on the front…
…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Stars at Night Hybrid Embossing Folder.
Et Voila! Okay – so…this is NOT my usual kinda card, I know! But…man. I really really love how it turned out! The simple die cuts – and gorgeous sentiment (that FONT!!) from Night Divine are perfect on the star-strewn Stars at Night embossed card front. And – easy to make a bunch of them, right?!?
I hope you like!

I HAVE told him it’s really not safe to pick up hitchhikers!
He doesn’t really listen. 🤷♀️🤷♀️
As you might imagine – that’s the the tip of the iceberg!
