Totally worth the effort - that wreath just looks cozy and welcoming. Love your card, Deanne!

Wow, your arms must have ached after 2 hours of star cutting. Fab result though. I saw a similar style recently with snowflakes, but the pops of red on the green really make this version stand out.

This is so creative and nicely done. All your work was definitely worth it. I want to try this too. (Of course it may take me days to complete a card with this technique...LOL (I"m a slow card maker!) But just received a vrand new Star die, and this would be a way to try it out.
