CAS Christmas Star

Hi all - just a quick post in this busy season! Technically I'm supposed to be finishing the insides of all the Christmas cards I made throughout the year. Reminder - do the insides when you do the card fronts next year!

Today I'm sharing an entry for this month's CAS Christmas Challenge to include a star:

Supplies: Paper - Recollections (Michaels) Pearlized Gold A2 card;
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Paper Studio glitter paper
Stamps - Hero Arts K5958 Music Star (retired)
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-manics Blueprints 20 (retired);
Other - Hero Arts gold embossing powder; Gathered Twigs Distress Ink;
 Darice sequins; Recollections gems

My favorite star is a 2014 wood block star from Hero Arts. My trick on this one is I used a shade of brown distress ink for my embossing (my embossing ink pad was a bit dry). You'd never know it once the gold powder is heated!! I played around with a bunch of ways to add the sentiment but ended up with a simple word die, embellished with a silver sequin star & gem.

That's it for today - thanks for stopping, friends! Back to my Christmas card finishing and mailing!!
