The current Twofer challenge #33 has a theme of stars and here is what the challenge calls for:
I used a Simon Says Stamp star border die to create stars on both cards.
First up is the Birthday card, done with snippets of red, white, and blue designer paper, along with a horizontal border of punched stars (using a SU! mini star punch) as well as the SSS star border that was cut in navy and white, and yes, I exchanged all those tiny white stars into the navy for sharp contrast. I find doing that therapeutic - until a star gets lost and I have to find it! Therapy then turns right into frustration! Hah! The larger layered star was done with a Sweet'n Sassy set of star dies and I added a decorative brad to the center. The sentiment is a SSS pre-printed sentiment that I layered with red and called this one done.
Next up is the Christmas card, made with a SSS Wishing trees die that was cut with sparkly gold SU! paper, as well as hunter green cardstock. Again I carefully swapped the gold tree negatives with the green ones and placed it on a snowy background done with a SU! softly fallen embossing folder. The little stars were cut from sparkly red cardstock using the SSS star border die, and I added a Memory Box Star of Wonder die-cut star to the largest tree, adding a greeting done with Cottage Cutz dies.
Crafting for me has become diminished as life takes twists and turns that keeps me busy doing other things now. I'm always glad for your visits and sweet comments, and I appreciate your time spent with me here even though it's less than it's been in quite some time. Thanks for your patience :)
Now go have a wonderful day and take good care of yourself!
