Come to Bethlehem

 Christmas Card

I haven't gotten much posted this week as I was getting ready for the Holiday Mini Catalog Class.  It was a success.  We had good company and lots of fun making our different Holiday projects.  And a SURPRISE project.  Loved it.  Thanks girls for all the fun and all the good company!

The other day I saw a  card like this-well I mean it was an aisle card.  But I have never made one....No directions I began this journey of the Easel card.  .Sooooo experiment  here I come.

So,  last year I used this stamp set alot.  It was one of my favorites - Come to Bethlehem (#118732-wood, #120591-clear).  But this year they came out with the new Champagne colored glimmer paper (#127885).  Well,  I got my stamp set out again and made this beautiful easel card.  The card itself is made from the Scallop Square Bigz Clear (115950).  You can't see by the way it is standing, but the glimmer paper is what is holding the card up.  It makes a little ledge for it to hook on and helps it stand.  The top about the glimmer paper has a Christmas saying, "Giving thanks for God's Gift of Love and the joy we share through Christ the Lord."  I paper punched the card all around in the scalloped edges using the Paper-piercing Pack-Festive #127857 and the new Paper piercing tool #126189 & mat #126199.   Doesn't the glimmer paper make it pop?  I love it.  I am calling it a night.  Thanks for looking.  Wonder what I'll will come up with tomorrow?
