Nativity Scene

I decided I should get on with some Christmas cards as the season is fast approaching and could well overtake me if I'm not careful.  As this one has used up a few of my snippets I'm taking it along to the Playground where Di has made two floral cards using the stamps which are the prize this time around.  The die set for my card came as a magazine freebie and with the camel and palm trees could be used for occasions other than Christmas - think holidays in the sun.

I started with a snippet of purple card which had Pixie powders applied (they work just as well on dark card as they do on light), then found more snippets of grey and kraft.  These were cut using a circular die before cutting with the nativity scene dies.  A larger circle was then cut along with a kraft frame into which the various layers were placed.  The word 'peace' was stamped onto a snippet of cream card and I felt this was all this card needed.  The image and frame were popped onto a square card and I nearly forgot to mention my rummage through the metallic card snippets box where I found the tiniest piece of shiny copper to die cut the star

Circles - Noble Pierced circle dies from Sue Wilson
Scene - freebie die set from Simply Cards and papercraft magazine
Stamp - from a freebie set, punched with Stampin' Up small oval punch


  1. Love your card Val the purple and brown go very well together


  2. What a lovely card Val - so delicate and a perfect Nativity scene (I like your idea about using the camel on its own as well).

    Great to see you in the Snippets Playground! And many thanks for the shout out!
