I make over 150 cards to send at Christmas time. They all vary because I enjoy making different cards. Some (very few) are very detailed and many are easier cards. When making multiples, I like to go with an quick, easy look! That is where this card comes in!
I think this card would look great with a variety of colors. Let me know in the comments what colors you think would look good in place of the Misty Moonlight.
I started with a Misty Moonlight card base. Next, I took a piece of Crumb Cake and stamped the manger scene from the Peaceful Nativity Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink. I suggest stamping the “barn” first and as high as possible. Next, fill in with the Joseph and Mary and the animals on the side. I added this piece to a piece of Whisper White with just a bit showing at the top. This seems to make it really POP! On the bottom, I stamped a greeting from the For Unto Us Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight. Then I tied some Misty Moonlight Ribbon around the cardstock before adding it to the card front.
On the inside of the card, I added a few animals and a greeting! Just a little fun to pull it all together.
If you would like a more detailed manger scene, check out this card. I colored the scene with Stampin’ Blends and die cut them out with the coordinating dies. I make only a few of these and LOTS of the simple version up top!
If you would like to make either of these, check out supplies listed below. Also, let me know which style you prefer when making multiples – simple or more detailed?? Enjoy making them and sending them this season! 🙂
