Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme for our simple cards. This month the theme is “Tis the Season” cards!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Basic White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Balmy Blue cardstock was added on top.
- The stable was cut from Copper Clay cardstock using the Night Divine Dies.
- Behind the stable is a 3-1/4 x 3-3/4 piece of O Holy Night Designer Paper, then adhered to the front.
- The nativity silhouette was cut from Basic Black cardstock with the Night Divine Dies and adhered on the DSP with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Merry Christmas from Stars at Night Stamp Set was stamped with Misty Moonlight Ink on Basic White cardstock and cut with the center portion of the Stars at Night label die. It was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensional.
- A star from Stars At Night Dies was cut from Gold Foil Paper and added to the stable top.
- A gold Neutrals Adhesive Backed Sequin was added to the center of the star.
