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.

CHNC challenge 50: traditional Christmas

Well, another week has passed and we're one more big step nearer to Christmas Day ... only just over two weeks when my CHNC challenge 50 goes live and probably less than that when you are reading this.

For this week my challenge is traditional Christmas, whatever that means to you. You might want to concentrate on traditional colours or include 'traditional' items on your card - holly, Christmas tree, snowmen, snowflakes, festive food ... whatever you think of as traditional.

My card was made from Anna Griffin papers and 3D embellishment, plus the circle silver foiled sentiment - the red paper has flocked leaves that make it a lovely touchy-feely card.

Colours are for Cupcake inspirations 139:
