Day 4 - Christmas Inspiration

Hello again Crafters,

Day 4 of Christmas inspiration has arrived and I have a really quick and very simple card to hopefully get your mojo going for your Christmas makes.

The is the Nativity scene from Crafter's Companion Create a Card dies.  
I have cut and embossed it once on black Centura Pearl which is ideal to use for this traditional scene. It is a must to emboss it as well as cut as you get all of the fine detail.
I have used guilding flakes onto double sided adhesive for the background - I'm not sure if you can get the real feel of this from the photograph.  Gold gems dotted around gives it a bit of bling. I matted both layers onto cream cardstock and then onto a 7" ivory cardblank.
This is one of Friday's workshop cards and hope they enjoy making it as much as I did.
Thank you for popping by again and hope you can leave a comment,
See you tomorrow,
Bye for now
Jo xx


  1. Good morning Jo, I must say I didn't realise you could get Centura pearl in black but it is so effective for the silhouette. I assume quite a quick project. Best wishes Jackie

  2. Hi JO Good card if you have loads to do could be done in loads of colours too.
    love and hugs
