Hi everyone! It's just over a week until Christmas. My kids are so excited. My son keeps asking if it's Christmas--every day for the past few weeks. ;)
I'm up on the Glitz blog today.
I made a hybrid Christmas card:
For the background, the light grey woodgrain in the background is from the Raven collection (yes, a Halloween collection). I lowered the opacity to add just a little texture. The sentiment is from Merry Greetings.
For the stars, I resized and printed papers from the Hello December Paper Pack and Element Pack #2. For the papers on the green and white stars, I made my own design by stamping two of the digital brushes in the Element Pack #1.
After die-cutting the papers and some vellum, I stitched through them. I added a couple of sentiment strips from the Hello December Element Pack #1, sequins, and die-cut glitterstock stars. Here's a close-up:
I originally had the stars falling from largest to smallest, but the card seemed unbalanced. My friend Wida suggested mixing up the sizes of the stars--great tip! (Thanks, Wida!)
If you get a chance, swing by the Glitz blog to see the other projects.
Have a great week! Thank you so much for stopping by!
