FMS261 Star of Wonder

Hey, it’s time for another freshly made sketch and I can guarantee you that this one is freshly made because I’m hosting this week’s challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I thought this would be easy to use for a slew of Christmas cards… I hope you like working with it!


Wow.  November.  Can you believe it?  I’ve barely squeaked a fall card or two out and now I feel like I’m already behind on Christmas cards.  Okay, maybe it’s more than a feeling.

Please forgive the dark photo; when I lightened it, the sparkle would disappear, so I opted for the darker version.  Today’s card features Star of Light Stamp Set and Starlight Framelits (available as a bundle, too).  It also features lots of heat embossing, which seems to be my passion lately.  The die cut star and the strip of Pool Party were embossed first with Iridescent Ice followed with a coat of clear embossing,  The flourish was stamped with pool party and then heat embossed with both Iridescent Ice and Clear.  And, finally, the sentiment was double-embossed with silver.
