Waltzing With the Stars


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:


     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!
