This Special Season

This week at Merry Monday Challenges its all about the "star" I wish the sparkle would show up on this card because it just glitters and shines in every movement. I have no idea if it's my new room I craft in or just my camera is just gone mad but I can't get decent photos that capture the true feeling I give my cards.

I just used some white on white for this one and stamped a sentiment from the Stampin Up "special season" set. The ssmaller stars are punched right into the card staock and backed with gold glitter paper and the larger star is punched with the same glitter paper. I took some smooch, added a bit of water to speckle the background of the card. 

If you would like to try your hand at this challenge, Head on over to Merry Monday challenge blog and get started each week on those Christmas and Holiday cards!

Thanks for stopping by everyone!


  1. Wonderful texture and depth with your punched and popped up stars. The speckles are a fab backdrop texture as well. Nicely designed. I saw your card at MM.

  2. What a gorgeous CAS card! Don't you just hate it when you can't get the sparkle and shine to show in your photos? Drives me nuts! Thanks for the tip about using Smooch and water - I never thought to do that!

  3. This is just beautiful. Great CAS design and I love the splatters in the background. Linda xx

  4. I love this CAS design and I can see that the stars have sparkle (which is almost impossible to photograph). Love the spatters! Thanks, Deb, for sharing this with us at Merry Monday.

  5. There is so much beauty in simplicity. Lovely card.

  6. Beautiful! Love the sentiment!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Merry Monday.
