I am finally back to spending a bit of time in my craft room. I've just been posting cards I had on hand but made this card today, especially for the Christmas Card Club theme of Christmas Carol.
My Carol is Oh Little Town of Bethlehem but it could also be We Three Kings! I will leave the choice up to you.
My card was made from snippets so I created my design with my snippets in mind. I already had this oval stamped image so decided to pop it behind some hilly dunes. I cut two American Crafts Heidi Swapp, Marquee Love gold glitter paper hills, simply because my newish Lawn Fawn stitched hills die is fun to use, and I enjoyed cutting it twice!
I then cut two more hills out of kraft card, inked the hilly edges and slid them behind the glittered hills to give the idea of a shadow.
I added some Stardust stickles to the stamped stars, but I am not very happy with myself... I mucked up the stickled stars a wee bit, as my hand was not steady. Oh well, I keep telling myself that some stars shine brighter than others. I will spare you a close up of the stars as you will shudder! I wish I had used gold pearlescent paint and placed it carefully on each star with a pointy tool. Sigh...
