Ah, the simplicity of it all...gotta love simple! Although Christmas comes in a variety of colors I will forever be a fan of the traditional red and green. Here are some tips to making this card.  1) I used the Merry Minis punch pack to punch out the stars (4 total) versus the star framelit only because it was faster. 2) Don't get crazy about trying to decide how wide or long to make your designer paper strips. I just 'wong it'. Some things in life don't require too much planning. *wink*  3) Those of you who know me know that I'm a HUGE FAN of Dimensionals so, yes, the stars are mounted with Dimensionals!
