Starry First Christmas

Instructions:

Page size: 12 x 12”. Use light blue decorative paper as a scrapbook page base, splatter with white acrylic paint, sponge some areas with Blueprint Sketch Distress or Distress Oxide Ink. Tear a piece of darker blue decorative paper from the side all the way across on the top and bottom of paper. Tear another smaller piece for right side of matted photo. Curl the torn edges up on both sides of both pieces.

Use a snowflake stencil with white pigment ink on the large piece of dark blue toward the left half of paper. Glue both pieces of dark blue paper onto 12 x 12" page centering vertically on page with small piece glued to the right side.

5 x 7" photo used in sample, create a plain white frame with the Frame A Card Leafy Border (no insert used) then mat underneath with silver. Glue photo to white and silver frame then glue it to the page about 2” from right side. Die cut 2 sets of the Swirly Border Accents (4 pieces altogether) from white. Cut pieces of white gauze then spread them out to make them thin and not so uniform looking.

Stamp blue cardstock using embossing ink then emboss with white embossing powder the stars and the snowflakes from the Large Holiday Star set then die cut. Stamp the stars including the large star with Blueprint Sketch Ink, die cut.

Create a large star bouquet at left bottom corner of matted photo including 3 Swirly Borders, stars, large star, snowflakes and gauze. Create another smaller bouquet of stars at top right corner including stars, snowflakes, gauze and 1 Swirly Border. Also add a little gauze and 1 snowflake to far left side of page.

Add Crystal Stickles to center dots of each snowflake (including snowflakes on the paper) and snowflakes in the stars. Add rhinestones to stenciled snowflakes and as desired.

Die cut a “1” and “st” using the ‘Letters and Numbers Die', from dark blue leftover decorative paper and from silver. Stamp and emboss with clear ink and powder, Christmas onto dark blue decorative paper, die cut then die cut Christmas from silver as well. Layer silver under letters, number and word slightly offset. Use pop ups under the 1st and Christmas then attach to page over the large star bouquet.
