A Christmas Star...

Christmas card factory is open...

For me this is the best part of Christmas,
 besides watching my kids open their gifts and them being excited for the holiday.

So hopefully making Christmas cards will make me more festive... 
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate Christmas... I just am not a fan...
For so many reasons...
I prefer Halloween... I prefer 4th of July... not so much Christmas.
But I do love making Christmas cards.

To make this card I used:
Meljen's Digi - A Cozy Star
you can find it here:

Red Cardstock by Recollections
All Seasons Stack by Recollections
Nutcracker stamp by Recollections
Red Ink by Craftsmart
Happy Days stamp by Cardz TV
Snowcap (White textured) cardstock by Core'dinations
Sakura Pens:
Gelly Roll: M#19
Glaze: #803
Bright Large Gemstones by Martha Stewart

Here is my card:
 Front of Card. I used foam tape to pop the star up and I used the red gemstones.
