Stars or Stripes?

We're still celebrating Stars OR Stripes at Jingle Belles, or if you're really into it, you can make a holiday card that has BOTH! Scroll down to the original post to link your cards.

Meanwhile, here's what we made this week (both of us using stars AND stripes):

Lauren says, "This week I've circle-punched some vintage-inspired holiday illustrations from an older Authentique patterned paper, dusted off a leftover piece of classic Basic Grey Stripey paper, added a Simple Stories sentiment, and then bumped up the star power with washi tape, a paper strip and some ancient anodized brads. Not the fanciest card I've ever made but it's sweet; plus... it's flat and mailable, which becomes a more desirable thing to me every time they raise the postage rates!

Stephanie says, "My card started by covering a red cardstock scrap with multiple sizes of two different gold star stickers.  Next I paired with with some stripes (in the form of plaid).  The final touches were a puffy coffee mug stocler and the perfect Caffeinated Christmas Sentiment from STAMPlorations designed by our friend Becca (this card is also perfect for the Stars Challenge at Caffeinated Christmas)."
