Star light, star bright.

Hi friends! A very Happy Monday to you! I’m thrilled to be on the blog today over at The Project Bin with another crafty tutorial! If you’re interested, take a peek at that HERE. We are doing “Christmas in June” on the blog and I created a super fun Christmas card using the Merriest Christmas stamps and dies along with the Summer Fun stamp set from my stash. Christmas stamps and dies paired with a Summer stamp set, you say?! Yep, I used the sun from the Summer Fun stamp set as the bright star! ;)

I created a top fold card base from charcoal gray cardstock to simulate a nighttime scene. I tore three snow banks from linen cardstock and arranged my die cut snowman and trees on the front. I heat embossed the sentiment and the ‘star’ above the die cut elements in white.

I stamped the inside sentiment in black ink and embellished the panel with a strip of red cardstock, and layered the panel on the red cardstock.

And another peek… really loving this little snowman! The sentiments in this set are so awesome!

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
