Woohoo! I don't usually do a card for Scribble Picnic, but as the themes this fortnight was the same as Jingle Belles it seemed written in the STARS.
When I saw the theme for Jingle Belles I thought I remembered having recently purchasing a star die with a scene in it. But not being able to put my fingers on it quickly, and with time running out, I decided to go with another die, or dies. I used my SU layered star, along with a Hero Arts star ornament die, and I'll have to look up that twig wreath die if you need to know. The stamps on the top star and the sentiment also go along with the Hero Arts set.
I wanted to stay away from a brown twiggy wreath and luckily found a matte gold piece of a fancy pastry box I had in my recycling stash. The sentiment is embossed in gold and the secret I will divulge here is that it is covering the hole in the star point that makes that star an ornament.
I've been in a card-making funk lately with some rather uninspired designs, but I'm very happy with this one. Despite it having 6 layers, it came together pretty easily if you don't count the time I spent frantically searching for that little sentiment stamp which had attached itself to the die package. HWNSNBP came up to ask me something whilst I was looking for it and quickly exited the room after asking me what I was doing. But the good news was, while I was searching for that I found the new star die! Well, maybe I might have time for one more Jingle Belle Star card.
In the meantime, I hope the Picnickers don't mind me sharing this at the picnic this week. I'll come back to add the link to Scribble Picnic so you can visit along with me. But now I need to see all the Stars and/or Strips over at Jingle Belles.
Edited to add the link to Scribble Picnic. And next week the theme is HOT DOG.
