I went with a bold color scheme for this one!  Since I was going with a night theme I also wanted to bring yellow into the card to show stars and moonlight.  I started by die cutting the white watercolored panel using the Dual Dotted Squares Die set.  I then used my Zig Real Brush pens to watercolor the background.  I stamped that fun script sentiment from the follow up stamp set called All the Christmas You'll Ever Need 2.  The blue background for the card was simply made by die cutting the Cover Up Plate: Diamond Lace and then backing it with bright yellow cardstock.

For my last card I used the gorgeous new Tis the Season Stamp Set.  I embossed the image with gold glitter embossing powder onto a vellum panel that had been die cut using the Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangles die set (I used the same set to die cut around the outside edge of the card as well).

After embossing, I colored the vellum on the back side with copics to give it just a subtle hint of color.  Then, I embossed the sentiment in red and tied the panel to the card with shimmer twine from The Twinery.
