Christmas Shimmer

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge, it's Recipe week and the recipe is Shimmer.


I decided to create a Christmas card using some papers and a sentiment from Pink Petticoat (now trading as The Lovely Studio).


I used my X-Cut dies and punch to cut out some stars, I then roughly heat embossed them for a distressed feel and to create my 'shimmer'.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


Less is More Challenge 330 - Shimmer
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 479 - CAS

Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated - please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

Sharon said...

What a fantastic take on the shimmer theme Pauline! The distressed-embossed shimmery stars are luscious. Really love your design with all its depth and texture and that super soft text behind the big star. Is that stamped? If yes, your fading on the edges is just incredible! Thank you so much for sharing this little beauty with us at Less is More xx
