Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 14

Come to Bethlehem Christmas Card

I love this sketch for the Grand Opening of the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Blog!  My goal was to create an elegant card using this weeks sketch.  Since this is the Grand Opening week for the Paper Craft Crew the card had to be special and "sparkle!"

Come To Bethlehem Stamp Set

One of my favorite Christmas Stamp Sets is the Come To Bethlehem Stamp Set.  I really felt the new Illuminate Stamp Pad would be perfect with this stamp set stamped on a background of Midnight Muse!  I love how the shimmer sets apart the image and you get such a beautiful yet subtle look.  The base of the card is Very Vanilla which I embossed using the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder.  The Midnight Muse with the stamped image is cut out using the Labels Collection Framelits.  The tag is Very Vanilla stamped with the Merry Christmas using the Midnight Muse.  I love the Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons and just loved the "crystal" effect reminding me of "ice."  The banner is created using the Petite Pennant Builders Punch with the JOY stamped using the Notable Alphabet Stamp Set.  The ribbon is the Very Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon.
