Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!! I want to wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas and thank you for all your support and sweet comments throughout the year! I am looking forward to a wonderful day with family and friends and feeling so thankful to have all four of my daughters in one place. 

I made a card to share with you today and I think it is my favorite card I made this season. 

My first step was to add the stars to the Black Licorice Card Stock. I used the Starry Night Stencil and white embossing paste and sprinkled glitter on the embossing paste before it dried. In the Smooth White Card Stock card front I cut two circles with the Circle STAX Die-namic 1 and 2.

Next I add a clear acetate behind the ornaments and then a layer of a thin foam to contain the sequins inside the circle. When I make shaker cards I like to glue a few sequins in place at the top and then add loose sequins that move around. Then I adhered the top layer to the black card stock. 

The stars are cut from gold glittered card stock with the Pierced Star STAX Die-namics and the sentiment is from the Merry Messages Stamp Set. 

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Merry Messages Stamp Set. 

Here are the products I used to create my card:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
