Stars and Snowflakes

Kit & Clowder recently offered a dozen different give-aways on FB. I loved getting a new, and adorable, digi from Di’s Digi Stamps named “Winter Night” and just had to create a card with it. I made a variation of a pop-up front step panel card, using the instructions HERE but just following the first seven steps. I love the results! The sentiment on the inside is from a favorite set from Beccy’s Place named “The Nativity.” I cut the star from the digi and added a few layers of sparkly paper behind it then “hung” it in the sky on a slip of acetate. The other stars are stamped with a mini punch from Studio G. (Allows me to enter the current Double D's challenge!)

Many years ago a friend sent me a card that held this wonderful sentiment. I’ve always wanted to use it on a card… and this is that card! For the background I used a vintage Embossing Arts wood mount stamp with an old Kaleidacolor Raised Rainbow Dye Inkpad named Birthstone and sponged around the edges with an old stencil (company unknown) Added some bling with a large sparkly snowflake upcycled from an old card and some sparkly stickers.
