Come to Bethlehem Christmas Card

Tonight I made about 8 Christmas Cards. They aren't all the same, but they are similar. The basic recipe is below. My goal was to make a card that was simple but classic since I need a large number of cards for an exchange at church. Can't decide which one I like best!

  • Base - Very Vanilla cardstock 8 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 inches - scored at 4 1/4 and folded in half

  • Largest Layer - Night of Navy cardstock 4 x 5 1/4

  • Emboss laragest layer with Cuttlebug or Big Shot and an embossing folder (I tried a couple of different choices)

  • Stamp is from the set Come to Bethlehem by Stampin Up

  • Stamp image with Versa Mark on Very Vanilla cardstock (2 1/4 x 4 inches)

  • Heat emboss with silver embossing powder.

  • Layer stamped image on Brushed Silver cardstock (2 1/2 x 4 1/4) and adhere it in place with dimensionals.

  • Embellish card with vanilla satin ribbon

  • Stamp sentiment inside using Night of Navy ink

Happy Stamping,
