A Child is Born
Feeling the need to keep the "spirit" in Christmas? This is our blog challenge for this week, and there will truly be some amazing inspiration from our wonderful team.
My card features some perfect stencil designs from Dreamweaver by Stampendous. On the right side of the gray cardstock base, I've paste-embossed the Quatrafoil stencil in Metallic Silver. A pretty blue ribbon has been wrapped and tied around the card base, with the addition of a Dreamweaver Nested Frames die cut tag, stamped with one of the Perfectly Clear Joyful Phrases.
The focal panel is a beautiful blue Core'dinations cardstock square, machine-embossed with the Dreamweaver Prince of Peace design, and sanded to reveal the raised image. Finally, the Nativity stencil was paste-embossed in silver on the panel, and set aside to dry thoroughly. A piece of silver foil was placed on top, shiny side up, placed inside a folded piece of copy paper, and run through my laminator to adhere the foil to the pasted image. A bit of ink distressing was added around the edges of both the panel and the card to finish it off.
