Twinkly Christmas

Hi everyone,

Another weekend over and only 17 days till Santa arrives - where is the time going?!
I managed to make a quick Christmas card last night for Freshly Made Sketches. I loved Cindy's sketch and really wanted to use a heart but then I remembered I only have wee heart dies and tiny heart stamps!  I didn't fancy trying to cut a heart out myself so opted to go with a star instead!

I loved the colours in Curtain Call Challenge inspiration photo so decided to create a card with silver, blue and green!  Unusual choice for a star I know!


For the background I used my Cuttlebug star embossing folder.  I created my main star using die-inlay method and popped a small silver star in the centre with a foam dot. I covered the entire star with some frost sparkle ink . The wee silver accents are actually tiny stars - negative die-cuts from SSS falling stars die. I sprayed the card with some frost shimmer for an ultra sparkly effect!  Unfortunately the photos don't do the sparkle justice! The sentiment was stamped with black ink and heat embossed with crystal embossing powder.
