This week I decided to make another Christmas card, but wanted something similar to a decoration.

After  sketching a moon shape, I used Distress Inks to make a night sky, then added some splatters of water as well as white paint.  I finished with a light spray of  glimmer mist.

From there I cut the largest star from MFT Die-namics Star STAX from the middle of the card front.  As I wanted a border, I cut a second from another sheet of card, measured around it and cut the slightly bigger frame and finished it with white Wink of Stella, to ensure it stands out.

The scene was made using  Memory Box – Evergreen Trio die and a hand cut hill.  All had Wink of Stella added.

The gold heat embossed sentiment is from Verve – Glad Tidings.

I was happy with the way it turned out.

Hopefully, you will find time to join in this week’s challenge.  Don’t forget to check out the great Design Team cards over on our blog.

Have a great week

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
