Star Christmas


As this is my last post before Christmas, I am taking this time to wish all those who follow my blog a very happy and blessed Christmas and all the best for 2018.

This is the Christmas card I mass produced this year, using this sweet Nativity stamp from Kiwistamping, it is an old stamp, one of my original Christmas ones!

It was stamped on the inside of the card, behind the star shaped aperture, and painted with Twinkling H2O's

The Double Stitched Star die is from Our Daily Bread Designs, and I sponged the edges with Memento  Delicata Golden Glitz ink .  Now I have a pile of stitched star die cuts waiting to be used!!

The greeting was stamped in Memento Lady Bug red using one of the stamps from the Our Daily Bread Designs set  Christmas Flourished Verses.

A lovely Christmas card Maxine. (When I first saw the thumb-nail I thought the star was embossed not recessed!).
Wishing you every blessing for Christmas and the New Year. Kate xx

A lovely way to show off this blessed image. The stitched star shape framing showcases it so pretty, and I love that it's a wonderful reminder of what we really should be thinking about as we celebrate. TFS & Hugs. Wishing a good 2018 for you too.

Maxine, this card is so sweet! A perfect Christmas card!

Neet said...

At first I thought you had gone with a piece of gold cord and placed it in a star design. What a lovely card you have made here. Very inventive too.
Hope you had a nice Christmas, probably tinged with sadness I am sure, but nevertheless a nice one.
Blessings, Neet xx
