Blue Christmas

Here's a card I made with SU! tag punches! It's called a Tag Punch Star, and they're so much fun to make! I added stickles to the edges of the star for some sparkle, and embossed the sentiment. I added a pair of MS punched snowflakes with a blue brad in the center. I'm entering this card into the MFP Speedy Fox & Friends challenge #189, which is "blue Christmas."


Here's a version of it in reverse colors. I used glittered blue cardstock and pearl white for this one, adding small circle punch of the glittered cardstock for the center (shaped with an eraser and popped on foam tape) and 2 MS punched snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great weekend!!

Very pretty, Carol. Your title brings Elvis to mind. :-) Love these wonderful stars in the blue color.

Hope you're not freezing....I think it only made it to 33 degrees here today ...cloudy, windy and downright cold.

Really beautiful snowflake cards, Carol! I know it's a star, but I think the whole thing looks like a gorgeous snowflake and I love how you did them reverse! You should link them up with the 'snowflakes' challenge over at Addicted to CAS! Hugs, Darnell

What a fun set of cards! These are so pretty. Love the diamond shapes of these pretty stars, and don't think I've seen this punch. Really liked the way you have each one made so differently with your color choices and center decorations. TFS & Hugs
