VOSP Day 3


It's VOSP Day 3 and my final card shows the true meaning of Christmas. 
The nativity die from Stamplorations was cut from transfer paper so I could cover it with silver foil.  I attached it to another cardstock die cut for just a bit of dimension.  The black card front stitching is done with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle & I added small white & silver splatters.  The beautiful sentiment from AJVD was white embossed.  Didn't think any embellishments were needed.  Sometimes less truly is more.  There are prizes to be won for leaving comments on the participating blogs, but you must leave a comment On Her Blog telling Lori you want to be in the running.  You can also enter the VOSP Challenge where the prize is a $20 gift card to Mama Elephant.  Thanks so much to Lori for including me in her team again this year.  Enjoy all the inspiration & thank you so much for taking time to stop by.  
I'm also entering AAA Cards, SSS MondaySSS WednesdayDie Cut Divas & Stamplorations Anything Goes.
Edited to add: Also entering CAS on Friday.

Beautiful religious Christmas card. My Mum used to always complain about cards that did not have at least an angel as she felt it was not a true Christmas card unless it had the Nativity, Mary and babe, or Three Wise Men etc. She would have loved this one!

Helen Wallace said...

Yes, and my Mother would have love it too. So do I; Nativity to me concentrates the focus on the reason for the season. A new fave for me Greta.
