Hi Everyone,

Have you missed me??  I  was away teaching and then I took a week of vacation to give my muse a rest.

Here is a quick post to share with you, a wonderful Christmas card. You know that season is coming up fast.

I decided it was time to get out some washi tape and use it on this card. I'm sure I am not the only one who buys the stuff and it sits and waits to be used. So with that in mind here is my card:

I love stars and I just happened to have DP with gold stars on the deep red paper. And I also had a Spellbinders Star set, so I was in business for this card. I added my washi tape first and then positioned the stars and lastly added those glitter dots. I love those things. They just add a great finishing touch to the card.

Stamps:  My Sentiments Exactly - Christmas Spirit M-128
Paper/Card Stock
:  White CS, DP
Ink: Memento - Rhubarb Stalk
Dies Used:  Spellbinders Nested Stars S4-092
AccessoriesWashi Tape, Elizabeth Crafts Glitter Dots - Transparent

    What a fun card and a lovely design. I am with you about washi tape - I buy it and then can't think of ways to use it apart from holding my dies down while I cut them!
