these last year. I chose bright card stock this time. I printed the Christmas script background on neutral card stock and selected ink color to match the card. Trimmed it to leave a small border. I created the star accent by cutting the star in the same card stock as the card using the Cricut and the Joy of the Season cartridge. I mounted a gold star circle sequin onto the front and held it in place with 2 tiny gold brads. The star accent is held in place with 3D foam tape.
I have used bright card stock in the kit - black, red, green and blue.
