Noel Stars


Another card to send to Caring Hearts. I really like this card, it is simple but I think very pretty at the same time. I knew when I started that I wanted my Star Border going on a slant. Many years ago I bought some Martha Stewart Glitter Markers. I was very disappointed as they did not work, and I had bought all of them at $30.00 plus taxes. But, as a crafter it is rare for me to be rid of something that I might use. And, here we are today, I got them out and like magic, they all work! They just needed a few years rest. So, I went about colouring the negative of the stars with the silver marker, and added indigo to a few of the solid stars. I cut the Noel and coloured it with the indigo marker. I embossed the background with a 6x6 embossing folder that if used properly would have Santa and his reindeer, which I did not want on my card, I just wanted the stars, so I turned my paper sideways and embossed only the stars for my background.  The stars are mounted on foam dots and typically me I finished with a few star sequins in silver and blue and a few gems. Thanks for having a peek.
