Copper star standing

The star is a spectacular symbol of Christmas, and so traditional and classic.  The Starlight Thinlits Dies have to be the most beautiful star dies ever, and this particular die is my favorite of the set!

I tried to keep this card neutral, letting the copper stand out.  To give some texture to the card, I did a light neutral watercolor wash on Watercolor Paper.  Then I copper embossed some little bitty stars over that, and finished off with a splatter of Black Archival Ink.

A thin strip of musical note dsp was glued onto the bottom of the watercolored panel and then the beautiful Copper Foil star was set on with Dimensionals.  This was all layered on top of a piece of Copper Foil and a Very Vanilla card base.

This card is going to someone special for Christmas!  What about you?  Have you made a special card for a special person in your life this season?  I’d love to know, leave me a comment and tell me about it!  I love your comments!
