A Christmas Star for Merry Monday

It's Merry Monday time again.

Let's see what we have for a challenge this week......


Brought to us by the lovely Lori (Inkingly Yours),


I LOVE red and white, especially on a Christmas card!

I stamped this big star with Real Red Craft ink
and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.

By scoring the line, I could get a little fold for dimension.

(That was after I fussy cut it out.)

Popped it on a  piece embossed with Christmas words.

Just wait til you see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with.

I hope you'll pull out your red and white inks and papers and join us at

So glad you stopped by.

Enjoy!
