Christmas Stars

Hello , I am so happy that you have come a visiting .
It would make me even happier if you left a
 comment at the end of my post . Just a few words
of encouragement or even constructive
criticism as part of your evaluation of my creation
would be a help to the development of my craft skills.
If you don't have time to leave a comment ,
 a tick in a box would be great.

I managed two more Christmas cards today.

Here for 1st card I began with Real Red card stock. Certainly Celery and Whisper White for the layers. 
I love the Polker Dot grosgrain ribbon , SU, as it is double sided with red underside with white stitching on edge.

 I embossed white layer with Big Shot and stamped tag, O'Christmas Tree from Image Tree,  onto Certainly Celery with Garden Green ink , SU. Coloured stars with SU markers.
Greeting is from  SU set Snow Swirled, in Handsome Hunter , SU.

 For my 2nd card I also used Real Red
 as card base.Embossed Whisper White
is the mat for the embellishing .
Before embossing I stamped the  greeting
 from set , Many Merry Messages , in Real Red ink.
Three  SU punches were used,  Scallop Circle,
1 3/8" circle and the Large Star.
For the stars,  I had found some really old  stash of glitter paper so I used the snail adhesive to stick small squares to white scraps and then punched out the stars. These I 3D onto circles and attached some silver thread to loop over top of  white card.

Now this will bring my number of Christmas cards  to 9.    Hope that Robyn gets back to me soon
with her additions.

                      I enjoy sharing with you . Cheers for now  Shirley-Anne

Hey Shirley-Anne! What sweet cards! I don't know how you do Christmas cards this early in the year. . .I don't even like doing them when it is time! LOL Love how you did the cut out on the first one. Gives great interest to your card. And I love how you used "non-traditional" colors on your stars. Great work! Best, Curt
