I knew I wanted to gold emboss the Wonderful Blessing stamp on Cherry Cobbler and have it as the focal-point of this simple and elegant Christmas card, the rest of the card just "fell out" from there! The card base has a collage of stamped images and was then sponged with Crumb Cake ink. Before adding the die-cut circle with Stampin' Dimensionals, I sponged and distressed the edges. To finish I added an extravagant bow and a rhinestone in the middle of the star. I love simple and elegant!
