Today we used a beautiful die to make a Christmas card.
There are so many dies and companies making them now, it is
overwhelming.  This very intricate die is made by Taylored Expressions,
and I am here to tell you this die cut like butter.  I was actually surprised at the
ease with which it cut out.

Taylored Expressions Nativity Border(TE115) die cut
from Gold Glittered paper

The white card stock base in 5.7 inches
The Navy blue card stock die cut is by Spellbinder's, 
5x7 Elegant Labels 4 (S6-005)
I also cut the Elegant Labels 4 die with a tan textured card stock.
Cut the tan piece about 1 1/2 inches from the bottom.  Distressed
the edges with Vintage Photo Ranger distress ink, then glued it
over the Navy blue die.  Adhered the Nativity Scene die, across the bottom of the die cut only,  so
that the figures were against the sky.  Used tiny pop dots on the entire die, so the trees, figures and animals all stood out a bit.  I stamped O" Holy Night (don't know whose stamp this is, bought it unmounted, sorry, but you could use Peace or any number of sentiments) below the Nativity Scene with Versamark, then embossed with gold embossing powder.  Use a white gel pen to sprinkle some stars in the night sky

This makes a beautiful Christmas card.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day, until later................
