Simple Merry Christmas

I know you can't really see the embossing on my Cherry Cobbler Card Stock, but it really makes this simple card look more elegant.  I saw several of this type of card posted by other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, and I really loved the simplicity of it and knew I wanted to make a few myself.
My Cherry Cobbler Card Stock was embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder - a carry over item in the Holiday Catalog.  I then stamped my large tree and Merry Christmas on Whisper White Card Stock and then used my Big Shot to cut it out using one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits and added a few Rhinestones to make my tree sparkle.  Really a quick card to make, but sometimes I think less really says more.
The following were used:
Card Stock:  Cherry Cobbler #119685, Whisper White #100730
Ink:  Always Artichoke #126972, Cherry Cobbler #126966
Stamp Sets:  Evergreen #127970 W or #127973 C (Holiday Mini), More Merry Messages #126400 W or #126402 C
Embellishment:  Rhinestones #119246
Tools:  Big Shot #113439, Apothecary Accents Framelits #127003, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder #127819
