Silver Star Tree

Nothing says "Christmas" like a pretty Christmas tree.  This single Star Tree stamp from the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog sets the stage for this clean and simple Christmas Card.

This elegant, yet simple card is the kind you could make several of without spending too much time.  The tree is embossed in Silver Embossing Powder, then sponged with Garden Green.  I used an eye shadow applicator with the sponge on the end (like the kind you get at Saphora to sample their makeup).  That way I had good control at the edges.  

The stars are two sizes, the smaller from the Pennant Parade set, the larger from the Scentsational Season Set, and inked with the new Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad (p. 23 in the Holiday Mini, in case you missed it).
