Star in the Sky

Sometimes simplicity really packs a punch! When I made this card I was working with the Christmas Classics set- still in that nostalgic, sentimental mood, but I wasn't all that inspired. Maybe because at 1:30 am I'm not at my best creatively, but I kept at it and combined the stamps with this new Cuttlebug folder I have. Once I embossed the front of the card, it seemed a shame to clutter it up with a lot of stamping, so I went with the star and the greeting, and well... I surprised myself with a really classy card. Simple, but classy. Even Rich (hubby) liked this one!

Pretty simple right?
