Starry Christmas

Welcome back for another Merry Monday challenge.  This week, Lori has challenged us to use stars on our cards.  



So without further waffle, here's my card for the challenge.

I didn't get a lot of time to make anything this weekend, so my card is necessarily CAS.  I found the only star stamp I have that's not in storage, which was Christmas Classics and clear embossed it onto Whisper White using Midnight Muse ink.  I then cut out each star (because all my punches are in storage!) and adhered to a Midnight Muse panel using dimensionals.  The greeting was going to be white embossed, but I actually liked the watermark look of tone-on-tone, so I left it as it was.

Thanks for looking.  Head on over to the challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT inspiration.  There's some mighty nice star cards appearing this week :)

Products used:

Stamps:  Christmas Classics, Joy to the World (SU)
Ink:  Midnight Muse
Cardstock:  Midnight Muse, Whisper White
Accessories:  Clear EP, Basic Rhinestones

Cheers
Karren

Your stars look like they're floating in the night sky! And I love the watermark look of the sentiment! What a great card, Karren! Hope you can get your crafty toys unpacked soon. Although you've done an amazing job with what you kept out!
