Starry Night

Today I am participating in a challenge on the Less is More site. This site promotes clean and simple cards and shows that you don’t need lots of layers and embellishments to produce a beautiful card.

The challenge this week has the theme ‘Stars’. This brings to mind celebrations such as birthdays and Christmas. My entry portrays a starry night with the Christmas tree star as the focal point.

On Whisper White cardstock, I sponged an oval shape using Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy inks with a mask over the space for the Christmas tree. I then inked the tree from Season of Joy with Basic Gray and stamped it off twice before placing it slightly off from the masked tree space. This gives a three dimensional effect.

The single star from Season of Joy was stamped with Basic Gray, fussy cut, and added to the top of the tree with a glue dot. Stars were then added to the night sky with a white gel pen. These together with the main star and some parts of the tree had Dazzling Diamonds added to make them sparkle. A sentiment from Many Merry Messages was then stamped in Not Quite Navy to complete the scene.



  1. I’m so glad that you decided to join in with our challenge finally Annette, your card is beautiful! I really hope that you will join us each week from now onwards!
    Thanks so much
