The Paper Players It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Jaydee's challenge at The Paper Players is,"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas." 

It sure is!

 I have my decorations up, and am starting some baking already. I even have most of my shopping done. I love Christmas time!

I decided to make a Christmas card with one of my friends nativity border dies....I cut it out in black, and just used the wise men part. 

I took my distress inks and made a background, then cut it out with Taylored Expressions Starry Night cover plate. I adhered the wise men at the bottom.

I stamped the sentiment with a wood stamp I had bought at Hobby Lobby quite a few years ago....then I cut it out with Tutti's dotted square die. I also added a few gems. 

Here's a list of the supplies I used:
Paper: SU
Stamps: Hobby Lobby
Ink: SU black, distressed inks
Dies:Taylored Expressions Starry Night cover plate, Tutti Designs dotted squares, Lidestyle crafts nativity border
Other: jewels

Laurie you are so organised - I am green with envy! I love your card - the background is stunning and your card really is so fitting for our theme this week.

What a beautiful card, Laurie! I just love the scene you created with the starry sky and the silhouette’s of the wise men. That sentiment stamp is gorgeous, as well. Such a gorgeous Christmas card to celebrate the season.

Shopping done already?! I've barely made a list! Love the silhouette of the wise men and camel. Such a traditional image but oh, so very lovely.

What a lovely scene you've created! I like the starry sky, but you really had me at those silhouettes! Beautiful!

This is simply beautiful and, WOW, you just gave me an idea for some new dies I bought for next year's easy Christmas cards! Thanks! I haven't done anything yet but make cards, and still in the process of mailing them. I MUST do better next year!
