Wonderful Counselor

Two single stamps create this gorgeous Christmas card.  Thanks to Janet Wakeland for the inspiration. 
I stamped the star in Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out.  Stars are easy to cut out - all straight lines!  I used white embossing powder and heat embossed the words and used the Framelits to cut it out.  The bow was created from strands of the Burlap Ribbon and attached with a Glue Dot.  Everything is mounted on Dimensionals.   Who says Christmas cards have to be red and green?
