Stars on the Tree

Happy 2015 to you all! I've had a couple of weeks without crafting, busy with family and friends at Christmas and New Year both here in the UK and in The Netherlands. Fun times! Back to it now with my first post of 2015, a Christmas card for  52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. I always love making Christmas cards, even when Christmas is only just over. We have new team members on the DT and a brand new look to the challenge blog and we start with a fabulous sketch...



I loved the CAS look of this one and was inspired by the star shape, although you can use any shape you like. The embossing folder is a new purchase from the Sheena Douglas range. I've used lots of silver glitter card for layering and a star punch to puch out the little stars. I added a few star shaped gems too. Finally, I used the Christmas tree as a backdrop for my photo, sad to say I'll have to take it down soon :(

  8. Your card looks lovely against the tree. I never think of cutting panels but it always looks so effective.
