O Holy Night

It's hard to believe that I am posting Christmas cards as I am still making Halloween and Thanksgiving cards... but I'm excited about all of them!

This gorgeous card is 5 x 5.5 and makes a stunning presentation of the night sky.
There is a black layer 3.75  x 4.  
Using the Martha Stewart City Skyline punch, add two strips of skyline across the bottom third. 
The bottom layer is attached with dimensional dots.
The top white card is 4 x 4.25.  Cut a center hole with a 3" die cutter.
Use dimensional dots to center over the night scene.
Add a 1.25 inch Star of Bethlehem, with a small gem in the center.
Dot the night sky with white ink to indicate background stars, then
use Silver Stickles to dot on some stars, and Crystal Stickles to add luster to the roof tops.

Use the Martha Stewart Branch Punch to cut out approximately 25 branches. 
Layer them to create the wreath around the opening.
Top with small green holly leaves cut from a Martha Stewart Holly border punch. Use a stylus and foam pad to round the leaves for dimension.  Glue two to a cluster around the wreath.
Add three small seed beads to each pair of holly leaves to represent berries.

Stamp "O Holy Night" in the margin at the bottom of the card.  Use Silver Stickles to dot right in the center of each starburst on the lettering.  

Stamp desired sentiment inside.
