Rejoicing in Christmas

I originally purchased Stampin' Up!'s Rejoicing in Christmas set to make a few Christmas cards for my in-laws and to use with Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition.  They always use the nativity on their Christmas cards and I thought I'd make up a set of cards for them.  I guess that will wait until NEXT year now!  lol!  It is a pretty set.  I like it much better without coloring, just simple stamping.  Here is the card my Stamp Clubs made last month.  It was perfect for the Easel Card!

 

I like the blue tones on this card.  The base is one of the new In-Colors, Concord Crush cardstock…a dark purple.  The next layer is Marina Mist and I ran it thru the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder.  The Rejoicing in Christmas image is stamped with Versamark on Very Vanilla and then embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  I layered the Very Vanilla on Concord Crush cardstock, then ran Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon around and tied with a knot.  I stamped the Star with Marina Mist and punched with the 1 1/4 circle, and layered it on 1 3/8 circle of Concord Crush.  A Rhinestone Jewel is in the center.  It is also FUN inside!  You open it up and can display it on its' own easel stand!

 

 

The Rejoicing in Christmas greeting is stamped with Concord Crush Ink on Very Vanilla and punched with the Decorative Label Punch.  Hard to see, but I also stamped off the star again in Marina Mist Ink over top the greeting.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensions.  That is what helps to hold the top flap open in the Easel stand.  I added a strip of Concord Crush Patterns Designer Paper along the inside edge.

 

Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!

What a great card.  I just love this stamp set.  The uncoloured image is very effective against the embossed blue background.
