Stellar Christmas Cards


The stars have a aligned for a few cards.  It all started with this card of Michele's:

Michele's card
Those big, bold stripes.  The snowflakes, the sentiment.  That huge star.  When a Sizzix stars die came up for sale, it was meant to be!  It leapt into my basket :)

As luck would have it, the challenge at Less Is More is Let It Shine.


And the challenge at Simon Says Monday Challenge is Star Light, Star Bright.
****************

So then I made another version inspired by ...


this wooden star at Inspired By All The Little Things:
It's also going into Uniko's Christmas challenge, seeing as I've used their sentiment (the sentiment on the first card is also from Uniko).


*****************

And here's my third stellar creation:


Closing the circle with another nod to Michele's card.

This one's headed for AAA Cards - Christmas

  9. All beautiful cards, Shirley. The stripes look wonderful behind the cool looking star and diecuts. Unfortunately, it also covers up that lovely white, uncluttered, untouched white space we love to see on CAS cards. Thank you for sharing these with us this week at Less is More.

  10. These are fab cards Shirley. I do agree with Trina that the lovely white space has been covered, but whoever receives these will be incredible impressed. Thanks for showing us your cards at Less is More xx

  11. These are fantastic, classy and super elegant Christmas cards Shirley. Looks like you are on a roll with mass production - I need to find some mojo to join in!!! The others have mentioned the 'slight lack of white space' but at Uniko your cards work perfectly so thanks for playing along there this month and for linking up at Less is More. Hugs x
