CCMC124 – Come to Bethlehem

Today is the Thursday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!  The challenge this week is a color combination of Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake…oh…each of the Challenge Team Members have really different cards!  You are going to want to check them out over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Here is the fabric sample where we got our inspiration!

 

 

And here is the card I made using Stampin' Up!'s Come to Bethlehem stamp set.  I love the solid image in this set…and I truly WISH you could see how this card sparkles!  I stamped the image in Black CRAFT Ink and then applied Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder!  SO pretty!

 

 

The base of the card is Crumb Cake cardstock.  I layered on Basic Black.  On the Black cardstock I added the herringbone pattern from Love Letter Designer Paper in three 1" strips.  The Bethlehem Very Vanilla layer is placed on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I stamped the greeting in Basic Black on Crumb Cake and punched it with the Modern Label Punch.  I added one of the large Rhinestone Jewels to the center of the star, too.

 

 

Another pretty quick card to make for your Christmas cards this year…and there is so much depth because of the sparkle!

 

Run on over to Create with Connie and Mary to see what the rest of the Challenge Team has done this week.  Some great variety!
