Inlaid Die Cuts - Holiday Cards Day 2

Lesson #2 was about different ways of using die cuts.  I chose to do an inlaid die card. I started out with the idea of birch trees against a starry sky.  It turned out to be a lot more intricate for something that simple.  Tiny spaces between branches and the tree trunks!  I first tried using glitter with a glue pen for the stars, but they didn't show up at all!  So I ended up placing rhinestones individually instead.  This will be a one-and-only for someone special!  The birch trees come from Impression Obsession.  The cardstock, which looks a lot darker here, is PTI Enchanted Evening.
