Wrapped Star with Glitter

Hello friends.  I'm glad you stopped by!

Today I'm playing at Rudolph Days where Maureen has a challenge every month
from the 25th until the end of the month.  It's a great way to join in the fun of getting
those Christmas cards done through the year and not having a mad rush when it's time
to send the cards out.

This was so quick and simple.  It would be easy to do multiples.

There's a piece of glitter paper cut for the background, and a piece of Neenah Naturals
for the die cut.

I die cut the star to inset back in once the die cut piece was mounted on the 
glitter paper.

A gold heat embossed sentiment and a bit of twine finishes it off.

How's your Christmas stash shaping up?

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

This would be a wonderful die for batch cardmaking Bonnie, and I love that gorgeous gold glitter card,and the unusual sort of gothic script for the sentiment and gold twine both look great as finishing touches. x

Glittering gorgeousness, Bonnie!! I'm thinking I have a die like this one... somewhere!!
I've yet to count, but I must be close - now to hire an elf to get them in the envelopes! xx

I love the simplicity of this Bonnie. The glitter is pushing to take centre stage but that elegant star is holding its own! The gold thread is the perfect finishing touch too.

Such a beautiful and shimmery christmas card, Bonnie! You’re right - it would be a great design to mass produce, something I’m leaning toward more and more so I feel like I accomplished something. :) Thank you so much for playing along with the October Rudolph Days Challenge.

A very effective card, although you say it is simple and quick to do. An excellent proposal to make.
