I've made a really clean and simple card. I used my new die cut for the word "joy" which I cut out of black and gold design paper - love the bold, graphic look. I used some design paper to cover the card. Using my MISTI I positioned all the stars, inked them up and stamped them twice to give good ink coverage (particularly of the gold). Then I stamped the words "to the world" and finally I adhered the die cut word. This got the masculine seal of approval when Jonathan said how much he likes this one! On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a simple Christmas greeting.
I used colours from a recent Colour Throwdown Challenge - CTD#371 and I'm submitting this to Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#78 where the cue word is JOY! I'm also playing along with Happy Little Stampers Christmas - HLSDecXmas where they would like to see stars!
I'm sorry about the glare on the foiled pattern, but I had to use the flash on my camera yesterday to take the photos, so dark here, even in the morning!! I did manage to take another photo of the card at an angle so that you can see the paper better:
