A Star for Merry Monday

Hello friends.

Today I have another Christmas card for the stash.


This week's Merry Monday Challenge was chosen by Lori.

I used an old SU set, stamped on Crumb Cake, heat embossed, 
and die cut the star.

I pulled out a snippet that had been dry embossed with the Woodgrain EF,
popped the star on it and matted it with more crumb cake.

A little bow from linen thread and a sentiment and it's done.

I'll take this over to Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Days, where it's anything Christmas goes.  
This challenge is every month from the 25th through the end of the month. 
Always wonderful inspiration pieces over there from the design team and gallery!

And it's a good feeling to have a stash of Christmas cards put aside.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!



Card Recipe
Stamps:  Many Merry Stars (retired SU)

Beautiful!

This looks like a country Christmas card. The woodgrain EF combined with the kraft star is just that right amount of country!

Thanks for taking part in the April Rudolph Days Challenge.
