Stars and Stripes

It's sketch week over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and this time Jacqueline has designed a fabulous one for you all to play with!

I liked it so much I made two, actually I have 'lost' the one card and made a second as I had forgotten that I had already saved a photograph of the missing one.  Oh well, I'll share both with you.
I made this one using glue stickers and adding the foil, I love doing this! I used a freebie background paper and I don't have a star punch so I cut all these out from glitter card by hand. I used silver mirri board for the mountings and the card stock is from my stash, chosen to match the paper.
For this card I used paper from SU's Holly Berry Bouquet set, and then I emptied my stash of Christmas toppers!.  I made the banner by cutting a strip from the DP and threading it though the chipboard sentiment.  This is the card that's gone walkabout - hope I find it back before Christmas!


  1. Both just beautiful, Louise! LOVE the different metallics you used! ;)

  2. Both are great cards Louise, gotta love that sparkle! I love the blue and silver combo of the first one. The second one is so festive and that was a great idea to use toppers with that layout!

    I lost a card too this week, I spent a couple of hours tidying up while looking for it and still hadn't found it so I gave up - very frustrating! Went looking for something else later on and found it - hope you find yours! Ruth x

  3. Oh my Louise I can't believe you cut out those fabulous stars by hand - amazing! I love your sparkly creations!

  4. You did a wonderful job with this sketch! What a neat idea to use foil, very creative! I love the Holly Berry Bouquet papers on your second card! Your stars all look great!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
