No stamps were used.. the making of this card.
I was determined to make some cards on this wet weekend. I haven't managed many lately and stocks are low. Having said that, this is a Christmas card so that isn't going to help in the near future.
The current challenge at 52CCT is to use punches. I don't have many punches but one I do have is a little star. I cut out the stars and coloured them with a silver sharpie and then hung them on a pen line (which I did draw in pencil first).

I'm never sure when a simple card is too simple but I think this large sentiment adds enough interest but is still keeps the card simple. I was initially going to make the stars different colours but I like this two tone card. Maybe I'll try a more colourful one next time. 
I'm entering this into:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - March technique challenge                                        

and Pixie's Snippets Playground - I've used a snippet for the stars and, while rummaging for something to mount the sentiment on. I found a snippet of pearlised silver card I didn't even recognise. So I don't know where that came from but there is still a bit left for another day.


  1. Stunning card Alison - am in awe of your twirly line (pencil line as a guide or not!). Very elegant.

  3. I think you rocked the challenge! I love the line of pretty silver stars - so very elegant. Not too simple at all. Thanks so much for playing along at 52CCT this week!
