Come To Bethlehem

Today's card is one I made for a fundraising event this past Saturday.  At these events we usually make cards that are easily duplicatable as the attendees who support our fundraising efforts have varying degrees of stamping/cardmaking skills.  We have long time stampers and those that are brand new, but they all enjoy themselves and usually can't wait until the next event. 

I used the Come To Bethlehem stamp set from the current catalog.  This stamp set came out last year and I have used it several times to create some beautiful holiday cards.  This time I changed it up from traditional Christmas colors and used Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.  I used the Early Espresso Core'dinations paper and embossed it with the Lacy Brocade folder and then sanded it to expose the light colored core.  I hope Stampin' Up! releases additional colors in the Core'dination line because it is so much fun to use.  This paper lends itself to both vintage looks as well as those that are whimsical.  The image piece was framed with a narrow border of Champagne glimmer paper and the center of the star is a rhinestone.  What's a Christmas card without a little bling? 

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog today.  Thanks for returning and I hope you check in again soon.
