First Christmas Cards of the Season

I got inspired yesterday to start on Christmas cards - it's going a little slow so far (2 days for 1 card? I may have to edit my Christmas card list...) but I think this one turned out pretty cute.

I started with a couple of chipboard stars - I glittered one (inked the chipboard with Papertrey's Fresh Snow craft ink, then poured glitter over - it actually sticks really well, and then wherever glitter comes off, white shows through instead of the chipboard color) and covered the other with paper from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding line. I'll tell you what - I recently thought I'd lost most of my Basic Grey collections, and I was so sad. They're my favorite way to get inspiration - I think they're all so gorgeous. I highlighted the design with a glitter pen.

The background of this is Papertrey's Aqua Mist cardstock, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I don't remember where I got the Merry Christmas stamp - it's part of a clear stamp set, but I didn't put a label on it. I highlighted the stars in that set with more of the same glitter pen I used on the Figgy Pudding paper.
