Wish Upon A Star

Time once again for the girls in
the Christmas Card club to show 
their creations. 
It was my turn to set the theme
and I have chosen 'Stars'.
I have had these stars in my 
used Christmas card box for ages and they gave me the idea.
Card was originally going to be a Joy fold but as I
started to make I realised I would be covering up 
a large portion of the stars so disbanded the  middle flap.
I'm calling this a Half Fold Card!
Stars on white background is the reverse side of a card.
Red and gold card is from my stash.
Sentiments are Outline stickers by Daisy and Dandelion.
Large star is from a card which I centred the die cut over
to get the star in the centre of the design.
Die is Spellbinders  Marvelous Squares.

Inside of card.

As I was about to put everything away I found 
this star Embossing folder
by Crafts-too 
so made another card.
Sentiment is a gold sticker by Docrafts.

Entering the first card into the following challenges:
Hiding In My Craftroom #197 Any holiday.
Crafty Hazelnts Extra # Anything goes Christmas.
Rudolph Day # Anything goes Christmas.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #174 Use up your snippets (parts of christmas cards).

Valerie, these are both just gorgeous. I'm impressed by the way you used the S/B Square on #1. Really shows off the die and your fab star. Of course I'm loving that fold. #2 is equally lovely, and clever you to be able to incorporate that wonderful EF into your theme design. Nice challenge. TFS & Hugs

These are both so gorgeous, Mrs A, so classic! I particularly like the embossed stars on the second card. But, then, I also like the gorgeous crimson and gold on the first card, too! Beautiful work.

love Mags B x
