Joy to the World

I seem to be in the throes of either making Halloween or Christmas cards. This card is in the running as the Christmas card I'll send out this year.  I saw it in my mind and it came out just as I envisioned it!

This is a standard A2 sized card. I started with a dark blue base and cut a slightly smaller layer of 4 x 5" for the pale yellow underlayer.  Using the same cardstock as the base I used Frantic Stamper's Starfall Reverse Cut. Next I used Kraft cardstock and Frantic Stamper's new Bethlehem Edger. The "moon" was cut with iridescent glitter paper and a stitched circled die. Then I added Frantic Stamper's Three Wise Men Silhouette. Finally I used a die from Frantic Stamper's Elementals #1 set to cut a slot to highlight my sentiment. I further highlighted the sentiment using a gel pen. I love creating "scene" cards and this one is no different! Stop by to see the latest die release.
