Christmas Stars

Moving right along...  Today's two cards are some of the simplest I made this year and, yet, some of my favorites.  I would have made more, but you know how I am about multiples.

I used Sizzix Primitive Stars dies and a balloon string die to hang them.  The sentiment is old, from Hero Arts.  The card base is that Neenah 110 lb cover card stock I love so much.  These stars have Stickles Stardust glitter on all the white dots.


The second version has more colors, on kraft with a white-embossed sentiment.  No glitter on this one.  I don't know which one I like better.



Very simple and quick!  Happy holidays!

Simply gorgeous!! What a fabulous way to use up scraps of paper yet these cards look like a million bucks...dang you are a creative girl!! I couldn't pick a favorite either! Have a wonderful day....still in the almost zero's here...and today blowing and drifting snow...with the sun shining of course...only in Michigan!

They are both fabulous, Leslie! I love the string die - I've never seen that before! (Or at least I don't remember seeing it:) ) Really, really hard to choose a favorite, but if I HAD to, I guess I'd choose the white one.

I fell in love with the first card....then I scrolled down and saw the 'two-fer'. Gosh, love this one too. Scrolled back and forth trying to decide.....didn't happen. They both are great!

aren't you just clever, such a neat idea to use the balloon strings to hang the stars.... I love both versions equally, the first is so fresh and clean and I like how kraft just gives a country feel to it!

Oh, Leslie, these cards are adorable! I have loved all of your cards, but like you, I think I like these the best! Hope you and your family have a blessed and merry Christmas!

Marina said...

Yes, simple ...the kind of cards that make other card-makers say 'Why didn't I think of that?' - they look fantastic!

Stacy Morgan said...

These are so cute! I like that they look like they are hanging, great idea.

Pauline said...

CAS it is - love them both. I always find these are the hardest cards to make, but you have done a marvelous job on both! Love the balloon string idea - you are so creative. I agree with Marina's comment - why didn't I think of that!
