Christmas Star

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

I hope you're having a good week.  It's like summer here with heat and humidity.
It's a good time to stay inside and work on cards.

This is pretty straight forward with die cutting and embossing.

I did swipe the embossed snowflakes with white ink and embossed the die cut
foil star with the same embossing folder.

Such a pretty EF you have used on your Christmas card and I love the white ink on the embossed snowflakes, and then the silver star embossed with the same over the top looks beautiful Bonnie. x

Pretty Christmas card. Love that you embossed the star with the same EF. Way to go to get those Christmas cards done early. TFS

I adore your white ink-swiping on the navy, Bonnie! Such a gorgeous card - one that could be repeated many times to build one's stash pretty quick, right?
Love that!

So pretty, Bonnie. LOVE the shine from the silver foiled star. Gorgeous with the dark blue snowflake background. xx

I love the bright pop of silver atop your deep, moody base -- both embossed, and looking perfect!

The white swiped EF is so effective Bonnie and using the same embossing folder to create the focal star was inspired! Vicky x

Beautiful and rich! I love how you've combined the snowflakes and star, and what a fabulous star it is! This is a great design for multiples. I can imagine it in many colors. Good progress on your Christmas cards, Bonnie!
