Starry Christmas

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

While I had those star dies out.....

I die cut several for the previous card and wanted to use the leftovers as well as
some leftover white stars in with the dies.

Actually, other than the sentiment, all the elements of this card were leftovers.

This one is for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  I think it's close enough to the sketch.
If not, I apologize for taking it over there.

This one is QACAS!  I love it when those UFOs come together!

I'll take this one to Jingle Belles Stars or Stripes

Wow, two beautiful Christmas cards with those lovely red glitter stars. Love the layers on the first one and the embossed background on the 2nd one. In fact, I love everything about both cards. TFS

Loving every drop of sparkly red! These are both fabulous, Bonnie!

These are fabulous cards using the stars..I must get out my set of stars and do something seasonal with them as I do love the looks you have achieved on both of these Bonnie and love the red and white, just so great together, especially the red glitter and the added dry embossing on each, and the star within the star on the second. x

Brenda said...

Your first card, the challenge card is gorgeous Bonnie! I think you have met the sketch wonderfully. I love that you used all leftover's except for the sentiment, that worked out well. Love it! I also love your QACAS card. The red star on the white one is so pretty, the little glittered white star is perfect as are the little red/white stars on the embossing. Love this one too!!! Hugs, Brenda

The layers of panels and die-cuts with different textures are beautiful, and the dry embossed background full of holiday sentiments is wonderful!
