Red Star Christmas Card

Here is quick afternoon post to share this Red Star Christmas Card I made using the Mojo Monday sketch designed by Carole Burrage. I combined the sketch with the color challenge at CR84FN and went with a Christmas theme. If you're wondering why I didn't make the star a glittery silver? There is a story behind that! The short story is I do want to stay married to my husband, who has threatened to throw away and ban glitter from the house. His position is it gets everywhere and then the cats walk through it and then lick their feet and they could ingest it. I know he is right, but it's really hard to refrain from using glitter. So, I went with a red star. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Red Star Christmas Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Dark red folded card by Recollections, basic grey, very vanilla, and cherry cobbler card stock by Stampin' Up!, Christmas Sheet Music and Red Harlequin patterned papers by The Paper Studio, Rejoice Collection patterned paper by Bo Bunny, and basic grey/neutrals dsp by Stampin' Up!

  • Other Stuff: Decorative edge punch, silver ribbon, Cricut machine, Christmas cartridge (star), grey rhinestones, and stampin' dimensionals.


  1. Oh, wow! I could never give up glitter! LOL!! We only have one cat, but last year when I was making a lot of VERY glittery New Year's cards I never saw any on the cat and you never know where he'll be laying next. So, I must not be as messy as I think I am! LOL! Your card is lovely!

  2. Oh my... I would be at a loss without my precious glitter.... But I do understand. Our pets, thank goodness, are our family too! Your card is ├╝ber gorgeous even without the glitter! I love that sentiment and the DSP is beautiful! Love it!

  3. Glitter or no glitter, I think your card is beautiful! My husband often says my face is full of glitter, it does stick to everything, but I'm allowed to play with it since we don't have any 2 or 4-legged kids (and none with fins or wings either). A great choice of papers and design! Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my work.

  4. This is a beautiful Christmas card with so many gorgeous details. I can see why you'd like a silver glitter star, but it looks stunning red! Thanks so much for playing along with CR84FN!

    PS My hubby has given up on the glitter, but then we don't have pets ;)
