For those who celebrate the festive season are you madly running around ticking things off your list?  I am.  I have a big shopping day planned for my day off this week with 3 of my kiddos just to tick those last minute gifts off my list.

Today I am sharing my DT Card for the current challenge at Unstampabelles here

Challenge #96

Star Struck Starry Night 

TWIST Use Sparkle Pens and/or Glues

(or make it sparkly!)


Now I have opted for a non-Christmas themed starry card.  A little cluster of sparkly stars like you might see in the milky way at night.

The guidelines from Ms E were gold and sparkly. I have ticked that box.  I used stitched circle dies, an Alpha die, a few star punches and dies all cut with gold foil or gold glitter paper.  I popped the letter “K” (for the recipients name!) up with foam tabs. A nice clean and simple personalised birthday card.

So if you still have a few last minute cards or tags to make or a birthday card (I find stars great for male cards) you still have time to join in our current challenge at Unstampabelles.  Hope to see your creations in the linky.

Thanks for stopping

stars 50th card (517x640)

Another significant birthday! This time for a friend’s hubby.

I started by punching stars from bits of pattern and plain paper and cardstock. I also have a few die cut gold foil ones too. I placed the numbers on the card front with foam tabs then started with the largest stars and stapled them to the card front.  Then working from largest to smallest star I added more stars with glue and foam tabs until I was happy with the result.

Looking forward to seeing you in the challenge – remember no stamps!

Until next time
