Splitcoast Stampers for the wonderful inspiration it provides for all card makers - me in particular!! I have seen several cards using a wonderful nativity stamp so I challenged myself to create something similar with digital images. I started with the Mary, Joseph and baby image from Two Heart Designs and added a stable which I drew in Corel Draw around the figures. I drew the star and added it to the stable. I am happy with the way it turned out!! I layered my digital image over some digital sheet music which I downloaded from Free Vintage Digital Stamps and modified with Photoshop Elements to this earthy taupe colour. I added O Holy Night in a bold font, colour printed four to a sheet, trimmed them apart and then tore the edges to create this wonderful rustic layer for my card. I simply added a length of black ribbon between the two elements and tied a short piece to it using a single knot to simulate a bow!! Voila! A quick and easy card!!
I hope you will be inspired to make a few Christmas cards every month from now until the end of November!! Have fun!!
