Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #134 - Bright & Beautiful Star Ornament

Today I am having a little time creating getting prepared for me last Card Class of the year.  We are going to complete a couple of Christmas Cards and whilst I was designing the card, I was inspired by the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #134 Ornaments.

I took this challenge with a little twist and turned my card into an ornament that you can send as a card with a message in the inside but then you can pop it on your Christmas tree.  I hope you are inspired to make these decorations/cards to give at this special time of the year.

I have used the coordinating Bright & Beautiful stamp set with the Star Framelits Dies with also the paper piercing set that also matches this set.

I silver embossing the second largest star and then folded it with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool at each point to create a 3 dimensional star in the centre and mounted it with dimensionals.  I have cut out the word "Joy" from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies twice once in the Pacific Point and then topped it with the Silver Glimmer Paper.

Stamp Set: Bright and Beautiful
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: VersaMark
Accessories: Star Framelits Dies, Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, 1/8" Silver Ribbon, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Silver Stampin' Embossing Powder, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Eclectic Paper Piercing, Paper-Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat

I also cut out the 3rd largest star in Whisper White 
to put inside the card for your Christmas greeting.
