One of my stamping pals told me…”I must have every nativity stamp ever made but I just have to have this one, too!” I agreed with her as I had just purchased the SU All Ye Faithful and the SU Every Blessing stamp sets. I had an idea from a swap for the Every Blessing stamp set but was a little stumped how to use all of the images in the All Ye Faithful stamp set. It is so pretty but takes a little imagination to use all the stamps.
I played around for quite a while and came up with this design:
I would have liked to have the shepherds on the front but in the end, I thought the shepherds were appropriate with the inside sentiment since it was indeed a wondrous event to have the KING of KINGS born among them in humble surroundings.
Soooooo, we made this card at our Stamp a Stack this weekend…however, a funny thing happened on the way to my mall class 20 minutes away from home…Miss Cindy Bee brought all the ovals but one that apparently was sitting on my desk! Oh yes, the one that was needed to fit inside the black oval to frame Jesus. After I prayed to Jesus for a solution for my mistake all while having a mini-stroke because the black and gold ovals were pre-cut…this is what transpired…when He shuts one door, He opens another…and sometimes we like it better!
Of course, you know I die cut my small Gold Glimmer oval on the front from the Gold Glimmer panel underneath the white panel on the front. I even did another fun thing with the Gold Glimmer panel underneath- the first person to notice what I used it for in the next few weeks will receive some blog candy from me…so be on the look out!
