Shooting Star

I guess this challenge stuck in my mind, and as I had a not so great night last night, the idea for this card was born as I was tossing and turning. This will be the first card for my stash for next Christmas, LOL. Using up scraps of gold CS I die cut a few stars and the small strips first. Then I scored the layer that is four and one half inches square. I played around a bit with placement and then glued the rays but only glued the part that is behind the star. I cut them when dry and then I added the shorter rays which are a shiny gold. After putting the stars together I added foam tape to the back before placing them over the scored area and the bottom section of rays. Added a few Studio Katia gems from my stash and the sentiment piece (Divinity Designs). When the card is moved the rays wave slightly and the gems really pick up the light. The panel was added to a 1/4″ bigger card base using foam tape.

I hadn’t planned on spending time in my craft room today, but we did all our last minute errands yesterday because the weather forecast for today was for freezing rain. This on top of all the snow made us decide we weren’t going anywhere today. The conditions are not great outside and we see on the news that the airport is still having issues with catching up on all the recent chaos. A lot of travellers are not getting to their destinations this Christmas which makes me feel a bit sad for them all. I’m glad I’m home, dry and warm. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Ideas pop into my head at unusual times for me also. Lovely card! I was excited today when our temperature moved up to 0 degrees F. We were negative all day with the wind chill making it even colder. I stay inside with 2 shirts on. I have hearing the wind.

    1. My plan is to get as many done throughout the year as possible in an effort to avoid a time crunch. Glad you like it.


  2. Great card and start for next year’s Christmas cards. Definitely looks like a shooting star. I like the embossed lines you added to the background panel.

  3. Thanks Darlene. Good luck with the new computer. I hate having to change things like this as it takes forever to get used to them.


  4. Thanks Golda. Lately I’ve been enjoying doing this style of card and I really like having the scored embossed lines.
