Star Ornament Card

I have a Christmas card to share today.  The background was easy and fast, I just did direct to paper - swiping three inkpads across the debossed side of cardstock that I embossed.


Since there was a lot of interest in the background, I did some simple heat embossing on colored cardstock.  Although you have to fussy cut these out, this card did not take very long and would be suitable for making multiples.


Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Stamptangle Star, large and small, Sentiment Sheet 3, Versamark ink, Recollections Detail White embossing powder, Darice Ornamental Star Embossing Folder,  Distress inks Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Blueprint Sketch, cardstocks and gems from my stash
