Countdown to Christmas 2020: 7 weeks!

Hello friends! We’ve been back in winter clothes this week after dressing in summery clothes only the week before – crazy!! I’m still adding new stock to my Etsy shop and wanted to create another nativity card using this retired stamp from Simon Says Stamp:  
This is where the Brother ScanNCut (generously gifted to me by a friend who wasn’t using hers) really comes into its own as it saves me individually die-cutting each stamped image:

So quick!

I coloured the images using Stampin’ Up!’s alcohol markers:

And added texture with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder:

It looks really good 🙂

I used 4 adhesive foam dots on each image to give added dimension:

And one of the mini stampin’ dimensionals on each of the gold foil stars I die-cut from a gold foil sheet using my Sizzix Sidekick:

There is a simplicity to this design that I love:

For the inside writing panel, I added a gold ink star:

Very quick to make multiples when using a stamping platform:

The next decision is how many cards to make ahead of time!

MEANWHILE … this small but pretty azalea bush has given us weeks of visual enjoyment, and I found that the flowers will last inside for many days if you’re careful about when and how you pick them 🙂 

If you haven’t visited for a while, thank you for being here today 🙂 I love to share a little Christmas inspiration and if you have any questions I’d be very happy to answer them! Have a lovely weekend, Megan xo
