As I was making cards with this design (which I learned how to do in Cyndy's technique class) I couldn't help but think of the many Christmas carols that have been written in celebration of our Saviour's birth.
This card technique is simple, so I am including the dimensions of the dsp used here in case you want to try it.
Cut squares of dsp at: 3 1/4", 2 7/8", 2 3/8", 1 7/8" and 1 1/2"; then cut them in half. You will have two rectangles of each size for two cards. After folding down the top right and left corners of each strip, mount them on your embossed panel as shown, starting at the top. Add a star and either a tree stand or greeting at the bottom. I used a Crumb Cake card base and one layer of black cardstock underneath.

I'll be posting some of the other cards as I go along. I usually try to come up with four or five designs each year, just to keep it interesting.

This blossom has three layers of petals. The top 2 layers are sponged with yellow ink and streaked with gold WOS. In the center is a gem from my stash which I've had for literally years.
The birthday greeting was embossed with gold ep, and the leaves were stamped and fussy cut.
The rainbow dsp was a scrap from a previous card.and is a nice backdrop for the flower.
