Nativity Card

I really like the nativity theme for Christmas cards. They are different from the funny Santa Claus style cards, more serious and traditional, in a way.

There are so many lovely nativity cards around. I recently bought two border dies and decided to use them both in one card. I used mostly foiled cardstock, to make a shiny card. For this reason it turned out to be quite tricky to show the card properly in a photo.














The different layers were die cut and put together with liquid glue. The silver scene was adhered with foam tape, to create dimension. It was a bit fiddly to put tiny pieces of foam tape behind the details of the scene, but the result looks better for it.

I removed the baby Jesus part from the background piece, as the one in front plays the main part.

Finally I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed with silver powder. Then I cut the sentiment part into a fishtail and adhered it to the card with foam tape.
















Dies: Starburst Cover - Mama Elephant, Nativityscape - Sugarpea Designs, Nativity Border Die - Taylored Expressions, Stitched Rectangles - Simon Says Stamp

The German text stamp is from Gummiapan.

  3. Kjekt å sjå et anna motiv enn snømanner og nisser på, likte veldig godt bruken av det blå "glansarket". Det blei veldig fint til diesene. Takk for at du deltar i Papirplaneten sin utfordring. DT Monica
