***The Nativity

Hope your Sunday is wonderful! I enjoyed the morning helping out in "Childcare" at church. It is always so much fun to hang out with the babies and toddlers. I admit that they can easily tire this grandma out but they never fail to make me smile!
Anyway, since faith is so very important to me, this card was an absolute delight to make. I have had this rubber stamp for some time now,
(won it in a card challenge), but just hadn't had the opportunity  to use it until now.

After inking the image I heat embossed it with copper embossing powder. I love how this made a sort of ridge around each section that I then coloured with my Copics. Lots and lots of die cuts, gemstones, and faux snow on this easel card. Had fun trying out this new "burlap paper" I bought at Michael's. Sentiment is also another rubber stamp, from a set that I won in a different card challenge!{As you can see I love challenges, I totally recommend entering them!}.
Here are a couple of close up shots...

Have a blessed day!
