Nativity Card Ideas

I discovered this beautiful die while looking for something else entirely. It is obviously very popular as I had to back order it and I see it is again Out of Stock at my distributors. Still have a few in our Online store.

Anyway, just a few cards I enjoyed putting together during my first “Play”.

I have used a sheet from the Wild Rose Studio Paper Pack – Antique Library. Love that pack and I think it works well here as it has gradients of clour so that the nativity scene sits in the lighter shades and almost gives a glow!

 and a different look by first embossing the card with small hearts (from my stash) but Swiss Dots would also work.

Love, Joy and Peace

 Still trying to decide if this one below is my favourite so far. I think it is!

Gold Foil – if you are purchasing – I used the matt gold – ask for that if you want the same.

G45 Couture

This sheet of G45 paper is just perfect for card makers. You get to choose which 6 blocks you want to use from the 12 options – a double sided sheet (not two sheets). So many designs to create some interesting cards.
