Stars and Plaid — FMS411

These Wednesdays are flying by!  We are marching right towards Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed.  Fortunately, we have a new sketch every week at Freshly Made Sketches to help you with your card making for these occasions.  And this week our hostess is the incredible Kim Singdahlsen, who has a great sketch for us.  Take a look:

I made another card for the Christmas card stash.  I love the So Many Stars bundle, as not only is this set perfect for Christmas, but I love to use stars for birthdays, graduations, and other occasions.  Very versatile!

I started by embossing the star with gold embossing powder and cutting it out with one of the coordinating stitched stars dies. I added a little green rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels collection.

The dsp has pretty gold accents and is from the Wrapped in Plaid dsp collection.  I mounted it on some gold foil paper.  Some tiny little Snowflake Sequins were added as embellishments, as was a strip of striped ribbon.

The sentiment from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set was stamped with Night of Navy ink.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
