Starry, Starry Night
I am back with another kids quickie Christmas card. Boy oh boy...this is a NBUS and snippets card for sure! At times I think I have a room full of NBUS (never before used schtuff) and I am slowly but surely working on using it up.
The idea for this kids card came about when I was cleaning up my room and found the felt sleigh. I can not even remember where it came from. I am thinking it must have originally been part of a gift tag from one of my Christmas presents. I usually remove anything that looks like it could be upcycled!
So upcycle it I did. As I was trying to think of how to use it, I kept getting the song Starry, Starry Night, running through my head! So I looked through my papers and just could not manage to find any starry sky papers. Drat!
But I thought this snow flurries paper might work instead and tried adding some bling to perhaps suggest a background of stars. I did manage to find some felt snowflakes left over from last years cards so I added them as well.
I have had these black word stickers for so long that I can not remember when I got them...I think it must be years ago! I thought they tied in the black of the sleigh runners and added to the feeling of it being evening...Yep...it is evening already and Santa is just getting ready to hitch up the reindeer! I think this card will be for a little boy as it has a decidedly masculine feel to it.
Whoops...I see I have an errant black diamond bling that has escaped from the top left corner...I will have to dig out another one and do a little repair...lol Why is it we never recognize these things till
after we have posted the photo!
