Nativity Cards

On both of these nativity cards I wanted to capture the simple majesty of the Savior's birth through emphasizing the glimmer of the special starlight on that night.  The ladies at Our Daily Bread Designs happen to have a shimmery holiday challenge running right now, so I decided to share.  While I love all kinds of Christmas cards, from cute and fun to classy vintage, the very best thing to me is to capture the true spirit of Christmas with something focused directly on the Savior.

Materials used on these cards:

Card base light powder blue cardstock
Winter Blue Words from The Paper Studio
Textured Gold paper (Michaels)

Rubber Stamps:
Holy Family (Stampendous)
Christ the Lord (Stampabilities)
Images stamped with Black Archival ink and heat-embossed with Ranger Superfine Clear Powder

Glittered Nativity Star Sticker from Holiday Time Snowflake set CLX1305 (Wal-Mart)
BIC Markit Colors: Misty Blue, Oceanview Blue, Woodsy Brown, Honey Brown and Tiki Hut Tan
Crayola colored pencils
3mm rhinestones from JoAnns

Have a wonderful day all,
