oh holy night...

Hello friends!!  Trying to get back into card making mode.  It has been a little hard lately, but today I really felt like making something... so I did!  I used the Viva La Verve week 2 sketch for my layout.  I will also be posting this to the current Verve Diva Dare to use vellum and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  seeing stars.  Posting this to The Card Concept (thanks for letting me know it would be a good fit Kristie!) in the clean and layered category.


I used the beautiful Verve set Peace on Earth, as well as the Verve Starry die.  The patterned papers are from the Teresa Collins 6x6 pad "Hello My Name Is".  I love red, white and kraft for a Christmas card.   The circles were die cut using Spellbinders plain circle dies and the banner with a MFT fishtail flag stax die.  The ink is SU!'s Cherry Cobbler.  I added a bit of Crystal Stickles to the centers of the stars for some added sparkle. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and kraft; PP:  Teresa Collins; Stamps:  Verve; Dies:  Verve, MFT and Spellbinders; Vellum:  Close to my Heart; Ink:  Stampin Up!; Crystal Stickles
