Quilted Christmas Star

I am sad that this bundle will be retiring at the end of the 2017 Holiday catalog, it's such a versatile set.  Get yours before they are gone, as I suspect this will be high on eBay in the years to come.

The Christmas Quilt Bundle is a stamp and die set, that will make not just lovely Christmas cards, but I see Birthday, Thinking of You, Sympathy, Thank You and Just Because.

The dies alone in this set could make so many cards, Google quilts!!!

When I decided to add a sentiment, I really had to think what did I want.  As I wanted to use the dies in some way.  So I cut the star die twice, stamped one and embossed the other.

Than I added a little holly and berry decoration for a Christmas card.

I cut pieces, just in a real quilt to make the mat that the star would be placed on.  I wanted to have you look at it and want to cover up with it on a cold winter's night.

I made blocks for each corner, and then strips in between them using the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Which is also retiring, and I did purchase more of.

Card Recipe:

Real Red Cardstock - card base
Garden Green - 1st Mat
Whisper White - 2nd Mat, Mat for quilted pieces, and die cut stars.
Quilted Christmas DSP - Quilted pieces, the holly and berry are cut from scraps of the DSP. Just like a real quilt.
Real Red Stampin' Classic Pad - sentiment
Multipurpose Glue - this worked best in order to place DSP pieces. 
Dimensionals to lift up the Star
Stampin' Trimmer

Don't forget about the Year-End Sales Event and the Holiday Catalog Retiring List,
get your favorites before they are gone.

And this months Hostess Code and Customer Monthly Coupon.


Enjoy, Merry Christmas and Hugs from the Bug,
