Christmas Star

There are a couple of challenges to make 'Shape Cards' at the moment...I've made quite a few 'Circle' cards, so I thought I'd try something a little different. I used the largest of my 'Star' Nesties to cut the card (I cut two separate stars, then glued the tip of one of the points together to make a hinge), then layered alternating silver and blue stars, which I embossed with my 'Swiss Dots' folder, finishing off with a couple of snowflakes cut using a Cuttlebug bug die in the centre. This was so quick and easy to do, I'm sure I'll make a few more before Christmas.


Here's a view showing the 'hinge'...the card will also stand with the hinge at the top.



I'm entering this card for the Cupcake Craft and the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenges...which both challenged us to make 'Shaped Cards'.
