Hope you’re enjoying your weekend and spending some time crafting!

Today’s post is a very simple Christmas card I put together in just a few minutes.  A few alternating Night of Navy and Whisper White layers gave me a good card base for my sentiment and stars.  I cropped the star cluster in Whisper White using the die from the Stitched Stars Dies.

I thought I would cut a sentiment layer in Whisper White and stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy but quickly realized that wouldn’t work.  My sentiment had to be white, so out came my embossing basket.  I embossed the sentiment right onto the Night of Navy top layer.  I used the Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to get the clean white look for my sentiment. The beautiful sentiment is from the Dove of Hope stamp set which is retiring.  It has a beautiful font and clean images.

How pretty are those stars.  They are a Stampin’ Up! embellishment, but they have retired.  I had them in my stash of embellishments and they looked so perfect, I had to use them.  It’s hard to see how clear and gleaming they are from the picture. They do look like crystals.

So, cut a few cardstock layers, emboss a sentiment, add a few pretty stars and create something simple and quick.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
