Angels We Have Heard on High

 Wishing you Christmas Blessings. Also, Happy Hanukkah!

 I had fun playing around with a new die from Die-Versions & made it three ways:

I cut out the die in Navy and attached it to a sheet of cardstock covered with 2" sticky tape. Next, I added Snow Glitter from Sparkle and Sprinkle. I added a faceted rhinestone to the center of the star, and added tabs with rhinestones on the sides.  I love the way this turned out- it is one of those cards that looks better in person. 

Card number two:


I decided to cut out the die in white shimmery cardstock and add it to a navy blue cardstock background. One of the Navy's is shimmery, the other plain. I love the way both of them looked. I added a faceted rhinestone to the center of the star.

And, finally:

 I made this just like #2, but die cut a shimmery gold star, and the words Noel in gold as well for the inside. 

Challenges:
Sparkle and Sprinkle- Glitter
Brown Sugar- Christmas
Fussy and Fancy- Angels
Just Add Ink- N is for Navy
Glitter and Sparkle- Make it Sparkle

My computer went in for repair today- I am going to be on cell only until I get it back. I will do my best to get around to blogs until I get it back!

Thanks for stopping by! Many Blessings to all of my friends in blogland!

All of these are gorgeous Shelly! I especially like the third one with the gold for the star. Great way to change up the die and get various looks. So glad you shared it with us for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge this month.

Wow, this is gorgeous! Hope you are doing well and wishing you a fabulous new year! Not sure if you remember me!!! I recently started a blog called Sending Paw Prints.

Sending Paw Prints supports our furry friends by collecting blank thank you pet themed handmade cards and donating them to animal shelters and rescue groups for them to write thank you messages to foster parents, donors and volunteers.

If you ever have a few spare moments to make cards I hope you think of Sending Paw Prints!

Hugs, Karen
