If you notice the star and see that it is green – I used my Shin Han markers to color it.  The white stars will take the color but will need to sit for a minute to dry.  Items used for this card:

  • Paper Pack ~ Yuletide Carol X7187B
  • Stamp Set ~ Home for the Holiday S1014
  • Inks ~ Ruby Z2170 and New England Ivy Z2135
  • Art Philosophy Cartridge Z1686
