Stars At Night Christmas Card

Stars At Night is one of my favorite bundles from the September – December Mini Catalog. It’s simplicity and elegance made it my choice for today’s card. It’s Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players!

Stars At Night Christmas Card

It’s Clean and Simple week at The Paper Players. Our host, the amazing LeAnne, has a fun theme for us: “Tag! You’re It!”  The sky is the limit on what can be done with tags. I was so tempted to actually create a stand-alone tag but decided instead to feature a tag on my card.  I can’t wait to see what YOU create.  But before you run off to gather your stamps, papers, and inks, remember that when The Paper Players use the term “clean and simple”, we mean cards that:

Have minimal layers and embellishments
Have plenty of open space
Are simple and uncluttered

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Clean and Simple cards are difficult for me. I am definitely a “Lots of Layers Lady”.  In the past I discovered that  Stampin’ Up!’s hybrid embossing folders made the task of designing a clean and simple card easier for me.  For today’s card I reached for the Stars At Night hybrid embossing folder.  It was easy-peasy to create this card. Plus it has that touch of elegance of which I am quite fond.
