Holiday Mini Bailout #8: Christmas Star

Welcome to Day 8 of my Holiday Mini Bailout series. Each day until the 19th I will post a simple mini card measuring 4"x3.5". These are 12 easy cards that I put together quickly when I realised I hadn't made enough! You might find a couple of ideas in my hurried creations and be able to whip up a few last-minute wonders. For ooomph I'm depending on strong colours instead of my usual embellishing doodads and ding-dongs.... you know what I mean.

Today I offer you a Christmas tree, a different version of the one I made on Day #3.

No patterned papers, just an embossed background. To mimic the hearts in the tree I used Crafts Too Hearts folder.  The cut the tree out with Spellbinders Resplendant Rectangles die and inked the edges with TH's Antique Linen.

Here's a close-up of the tree from WMS Nutcracker Sweet stamp set. I coloured it with SN markers and added a bling on the star.
Here's the inside. The greeting is from WMS Seasons of Love - Tags set, stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves. 
I'm playing with: Winter Wonderland "O Christmas Tree"; My Heart Pieces "Vibrant Colours"Pixie Dust Studio "Christmas Traditional Colours" and Paper Play "You're a Star".

That's Day #9 all wrapped up. Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow's guest star is a little cutie-pie. Curious? Come back tomorrow and find out! See you soon.
