Christmas Star

Sometimes less is more or so they say.
I often revert back to less as I love clean lines.

This is a simple two tone black base card and the trees along the bottom edge were punched out using the new XCut Christmas tree punch, I then added gold glitter card to the inside so that it would show through the trees. I used a Spellbinder label die to cut out the two shapes, one in gold and the other in the black card that the base was made from and heat embossed the Star stamp with gold detail embossing powder, I finished the card with a simple gold ribbon.
