Merry Christmas Sweet Friends!
I hope all of you have a blessed day celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
“And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:8-11 ESV
I love all of the patterns in the new Echo Park The First Noel 6x6 paperpad and used one of the cut-a-parts as the main image for this Christmas card along with a sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set.
I will be sharing this card at the Word Art Wednesday #523-#524 "Anything Goes" Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the Word Art Wednesday Challenge blog yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Farmhouse Christmas with black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Die cut the sentiment with the medium double ended die from the Fishtail Sentiment Banners.
Trim a piece of white cardstock to approx. 3 ¾” x 5”. Die cut the panel with the lattice die from the Tim Holtz Mixed Media #1 Dies.
Mount the die-cut panel onto the red patterned sheet from The First Noel paper pad, trim and mount onto a piece of navy cardstock.
Trim a piece of the gold patterned paper from The First Noel paper pad, mount onto navy cardstock and adhere to the card front.
Wrap a piece of sage twill ribbon to the center of the horizontal strip and adhere the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.
Mount the panel onto a white card front.
Trim the nativity patterned cut-a-part, mount onto navy cardstock and adhere to the card front with dimensional foam.
Mount the sentiment with dimensional foam and finish off the card with a pearl in the center of the star.
A quick and easy card- perfect for mailing and reflecting the "Real Reason for the Season"!
