Happy Holiday

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog. I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #96 Star Struck Starry Night. The twist this month is to use sparkle pens and/or glues. The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite! This is my last post for UnstampaBelles and I’d like to thank Susan and the rest of the team for having me along for this past year. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed challenging myself to create projects with no stamping! ;)

I created a super cute Christmas card featuring a glittery starry background paper with an adorable image of a little girl whispering into the snowman’s ear. ;)


I chose two coordinating papers, an image and a sentiment to create my background. I popped the main portion of the background up on foam and adhered a thin strip of a different paper down the right side. I layered the focal image on dark brown cardstock and adhered the sentiment to the bottom of it, then adhered the panel to the background.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and the dark brown cardstock, added the sentiment, and layered the panel on brown cardstock.


On more look at this adorable card… loving how it turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Leslie, I apologize for the late comments on previous posts. Honey and I were hit with colds right after Thanksgiving and I’m just now getting back into the thick of things. LOVE this sweet vintage card! The papers you chose go perfectly with the image. xoxo


  2. This has such a lovely vintage look and the image is so sweet. I do like the glitter and adore the placement of the sentiment and die. Thanks for joining Time Out

  5. This is awesome, Leslie! Our team had a difficult time choosing between this entry and your “Celebrate” birthday card entry. Ultimately “Celebrate” won out! You are one of our Top Rockers! Congratulations and thanks for playing along with us each month at 613 Avenue Create!
