Gold and silver stars

I was commissioned to make a Christmas card by a friend who wants to give it to someone who loves stars.

The central star is from an Anna Griffin kit (last year or year before) - just what I needed for this card. I used silver card with gold foiled stars in the background, layered with a white card with silver stars - I punched the corners with a star punch so that the gold could be seen through the negatives. The scalloped gold with silver foiled stars was cut with a sizzix die run through my cuttlebug.

I'm linking this for:
