Stars for the Christmas Card Club

Good morning.  I am very early with my card, which is not actually due until Sunday. However over the next few days I have three DT cards to post so I decided to post this early rather than late. Sylvie chose the theme this time and she wants to see stars on our cards.  I've only got one - but in my defense it is a big one ... lol! 😇

My Card

6" base card - made from Hobbycraft linen card
red glitter card - recycled from a received Christmas card
sentiment die - Sue Wilson
pierced stars die - Spellbinders
gems from stash

I have been struggling since Christmas because I think my mojo stayed behind in 2019 instead of moving into the new year.  I decided on a CAS card which I think is very effective. I cut a top layer and die cut a star from it, adhered the glitter card behind and then attached to the base card with foam pads.  All that remained was to add the sentiment and a few sparkly gems and that was it.  I actually really like it but I think next time I will use a smaller star die.

Anyway, I hope this finds you all well and keeping warm.  I am still not totally well.  I tend to have a day when I feel great followed by a couple when I feel the exact opposite.  Still, it's in the right direction!

Take care and enjoy your day.

I decided to try and take part in Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Challenge this year.
