Starry Christmas

For my card today I have a Christmas card that I used three challenges on:  Merry Monday Challenge #108 - stars, 'Tis the Season Challenge #16 and Jingle Belles Challenge - Bling.

Card BaseSmoky Slate card stock cut 4-1/4" x 11".  Before scoring stamped on one side using retired Christmas Star stamp and Silver Metallic ink.  Scored at 2-3/4" and 8-1/4".
Left Side:  Added strip of Winter Frost designer paper.  Punched piece of Island Indigo card stock with star punch.  Attached to edge of designer paper with Dimensionals.
Ornament/Star:  Heat embossed star from retired Christmas Classics stamp set with mix of Silver 
embossing powder mixed with Dazzling Diamonds.  Cut out with paper snips.  Ornament cut out of Island Indigo using Holiday Ornaments Framelit.  Added Silver Dazzling Details around edge.  Tied retired silver elastic cord around neck of ornament.  Attached left side of ornament to designer paper with Glue DotsDimensionals used to add star.
Finishing TouchLarge Rhinestone to center of big star.  Rhinestones also added to punched stars.
When I saw the sketch, my first impression was to make a gate-fold card.  It turned out the way I had hoped which doesn't always happen.  So glad you stopped by.  Hope you're having a good weekend.  See you soon.

What a lot of pretty stars, Patti! I love the subtle big star and the star in the ornament is such a great idea! And then a star border too! Great fold to boot! Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!

What a great idea to use a gate fold for the sketch, it looks fantastic! The silver star on the side looks stunning.

Thanks so much for playing along with us at 'Tis The Season and our friends at Jingle Belles!
