Oh, Holy Night Christmas Card with QuicKutz Dies
To create this Christmas Nativity scene I simply cut the center only using the QuicKutz 12" Nativity die. This beautiful die has the 3 Wise Men and a camel to the left of the manger and shepherds, a sheep and Mary's donkey to the right -- perfect for both scrapbooking and card making. I'm going to be featuring a card with just the Wise men here on my blog in the near future! I love to take different dies and "make them my own" by just using a part of the die or combining several to create a scene different from the obvious intended application.
My card uses Bazzill CS, lightweight metallic paper and Stickles for stars. I stamped my sentiment on lightweight paper, backed it with CS for strength, rounded the corners and punched notches to thread my Offray ribbon through. I used foam tape behind the star and along the top of the manger for added depth. A simple, but pretty Christmas card that's inexpensive, easy to mass produce and mail, always a bonus during this busy time of year!
