Colour 2 x 7” strips of white lace with the chalk cloud ink and allow to dry. Once dry wrap around the card on 2 sides leaving a thin boarder of pattern paper showing. Secure in place with double sided tape and adhere to the card base using strong wet glue.

Make the leaves:- Stamp onto white card using the old olive ink and die cut. Place the die cut face down onto the shaping mold and spray with water. Place the lid of the mold on top and run through the die cutting machine. Remove from the mold and allow to dry.

Make the flowers:- Stamp in versamark and cover with bridal tinsel, remove excess powder and heat to set. Die cut the flowers and colour the reverse using chalk cloud ink. Shape the flowers using the flower shaping kit and adhere 2 layers of different sized petals together using wet glue. Add crystal drops to the centre of the flowers and sprinkle with prills – remove excess and allow to dry and harden.

HARK THE HERALD ANGELS SING


GLORY TO THE NEW BORN KING

And a few others bits:-
White card, white card for stamping, Black memento ink, Soft Suede, Highland Heather, Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand ink pad. Pear Pizzazz card stock– Stampin Up!, fine silver glitter, silver sparkly bakers twine, wet glue, Foam pads, hot glue

I coloured it with Copics:- Wings -Y00, RV00, Ox – E59, E35, chicken – R14, E43, Mary headdress – RV00, RV02, crib – E84, E43, shepherds headdress – Woo, W1,W3, W5, Skin – E000, E00, Shepherd – E31, E35, Shepherd 2 – W00, Y04, Y00, Shepherd 3 – B000, B00, B2, hair – E59


This is how I made it:-

Cut 2 pieces of white card 7.5” x 5” and score at 3.75”, 1.25”, 6.25” and 6.75”, fold the 2 inside score lines into a mountain fold and the outer score lines to make a valley fold.

Select the paper from the pad and cut a square slightly smaller than 5” and 2 strips the same height slightly less than 1.5”. Edge with Pear Pizzazz ink and adhere the square to the card front using wet glue, allow to dry. When dry, die cut a circle using the largest basic circle from the die set in the centre of the paper to form the aperture at the front of the card.

Make a Pear Pizzazz frame:- using the eyelet circle die cut the eyelet circle, then position the largest basic circle in the centre and die cut. Adhere the frame to the aperture you created on the card front.


Select a paper from the pad for the card background and cut a square slightly smaller than 5”, edge with Highland Heather ink and adhere to the back section of the card. Using the aperture on the front part of the card as a guide, position the nativity and secure into place with foam pads.


Adhere the 2 strips of paper to the front edges of the card and glue the front and back pieces of the card together.

Stamp the branches in soft suede onto white card and colour the branches in sahara sand ink. Colour the ornaments in copics to co-ordinate with the characters. Add glitter where  the snow is shown on the branches. Shape and add to the top of the card using wet glue.

Add the shepherds and angels using hot glue.

Die cut the sentiment and position at the front of the card with the remaining pine needles. Tie a sparkly bakers twine bow to finish.


 Happy Christmas in July
