I am leaving on a trip to Washington D.C. in the morning! I am so excited and will be doing a lot of sightseeing and tourist things. I am going with my dear friend and we are going to have a blast! With that being said, today was kind of crazy trying to get everything finished at home that needed to be done before I leave. I did find a few minutes to sneak in my craft room. I wanted to make a card and decided to link it up with two of my favorite challenges.
I used the fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge theme, "Silent Night!" I am always inspired by these amazing design team members and I hope you will stop by their blogs for inspiration!
The base card is Smokey Slate (5 1/2" X 4 1/4"). I layered Night of Navy and Smokey Slate on the next three layers. I used the Stars Decorative Mask from Stampin' Up! and embossing paste to create the "Silent Night!"
I added another layer of Whisper White and Night of Navy to make the focal point. I stamped the Nativity in Momento Black and used my Stampin' Up! Blendabilities to color the scene. I adhered a punched border on the left side to accent the image. A strip of silver ribbon was the finishing touch. I also stamped Merry Christmas (Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set) to complete the card. I felt the Nativity spoke volumes, so I did not add any other bling.
Please leave a comment if you have a minute. It really means a lot to me! I love to hear from you!
