My Craft Spot Christmas Release Party Day 2

Hi there! I am back with another sneak peek of My Craft Spot's Christmas Release.

Today we are featuring the new stamp set called O Holy Night.

I love the way this card came out!

I started with with a blue background in which I cut my star using a file I found in the Silhouette store. This created a window.

Next I took a piece of yellow cardstock and cut it the same size of my blue background paper and filled in the shape of my star with some sequins from My Craft Spot's Trick or Treat sequin mix.

Before adhering my background to my yellow I used the Fancy Edges - Halloween dies to create some faux stitching. It is subtle but it is there! I still felt that my card needed something so I ran my blue cardstock through my Big Shot with the Sizzix Stars and Swirls embossing folder. It was just the right touch I was looking for!

I heat embossed my sentiment from the new O Holy Night stamp set to a piece of vellum. I tied some Solid Yellow Baker's Twine ( Now available at My Craft Spot) around my vellum and added a bow and button.

Kimberly is giving away a $10.00 gift certificate everyday this week so make sure to head on over to the My Craft Spot blog and leave a comment.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.

Come back tomorrow for another sneak peek. I cannot wait to show you what I've created!

Saundra, I am so taken with your card! The sequins in the negative space look amazing - and the embossing is just perfect with this card!! I need to take advantage of the faux stitching die more often too. It's the perfect subtle touch!
