Recently I purchased this beautiful silhouette Nativity stamp.  Couldn’t wait to make a few cards with it.

The first card uses a couple of different designer papers from My Mind’s Eye “Oliver” collection.  A COPIC Spica Glitter Pen was used to color the Christ child’s halo.

On this second card, the image was stamped directly onto the designer paper.

A Paper Crimper was used across the bottom of the card for some added interest and dimension.

With designer paper used as a background, the third card has a simple design.

Just for fun, little black rhinestones were added to the embossed scallop.

On the fourth and final card the image was again stamped directly onto the designer paper.

Slowly but surely my Christmas cards are getting done!  Just a little more time left.  Happy Crafting!
