Merry Monday: Blessings

I sat down yesterday and counted how many Christmas cards that I had left to do.  Ugh.  I'm definitely glad it is only September and I have a few months left. It also added incentive to sit down at the last minute and play in the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.


So many directions came to my mind for this one!  But I settled on using a recent purchase.  I just got the Stampin' Up die set - Starlight.  It's full of fabulous Christmas stars, small and large, many are layerable, and this one that is cut right into the paper.  I did not get the coordinating stamp set because I have an old Stampin' Up set (from 2007) that I got off ebay called Star-Studded Season.  I think it's a perfect pairing.

SUPPLY LIST

The stamp is from the long-retired Stampin' Up set called Star-Studded Season.  The silver paper is my favorite glitter paper from Michaels.

I'm afraid to count up the how-many-i-have vs the how-many-i-need ratio! LOL! I love the simplicity of this card. The silver shimmer border sets off the snowflake and sentiment perfectly.
