Good afternoon Friends, Followers and Waltzers! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! This month's Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz theme is Christmas - my favorite kind of cards to make (well, maybe tied with dog themed cards, LOL). I decided to finally ink up my Seasons of Love Tags set by WMS and create this CAS number for your viewing pleasure:
I embossed that pretty star shape with silver EP and cut it out (it is designed to fit the Stars Nestabilities set, but I don't have it yet), added a silver eyelet using my Crop-o-dile and some silver cord, which was a little tricky to fit through the opening. I popped the star tag up with dimensionals onto some red foil paper by American Crafts which I punched at the bottom with Martha Stewart's stars border punch which I matted with shimmery silver cardstock and voila - that is pretty much it. Relatively easy right? This makes my holiday card count for the year 50 on the nose. Still behind where I hope to be this time of year, but not too bad right? This card also fulfills the requirements of the following challenges:
- The Pink Elephant Challenge 125 - Embossing,
- Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 138 - Punch it, and
- Shopping Our Stash - Never Been Inked (I know, it is so embarrasing that I did not ink up this pretty set sooner!)
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my creations. I hope you enjoy your journey along the WMS Blog Waltz. I am always impressed with the pretty things the other waltzers create with Claire's lovely images. Have a great day!

Beautiful! So festive, love this star image, it's one of my favourites.
Love the silver star against the red background!! It's so striking!!
This is really stunning. The silver really stands out against that red. Outstanding job.
Love all the shine! Great use of the star image and I like the star punched border as well!
Very Beautiful card, love the silver star tag!
Shining loveliness, Meredith! I just love the foil with that silver embossed star. It doesn't even LOOK like foil, it just looks like magic :) How did you get that punched edged so perfect on it? AWESOME layout and color scheme!!
That silver set against that red...
Love the metallics!
A fabulous, festive card! :)
Wow, that silvery star looks so beautiful and shiny against the red. This is gorgeous and that metal eyelet was a great touch.
Oh, I love this stamp set too, and I really love it in that festive silver and red!
