Baby Jesus is Born

I got this set thinking I would do a lot of my cards with it this year before really thinking about it. I love the set but it needs a lot of watercoloring. That is very time consuming when you are mass producing cards. I came up with this alternative that I stamped on vellum with Stazon ink and put Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on. That really makes the image pop. It's very glittery in real life. I also used brads to adhere it to the paper instead of using vellum glue. You can't use any kind of regular glue when adhering vellum or it will show through. The words Christmas Blessings were stamped with White Craft Ink and I used white embossing powder to make it stand out. Stamps: Baby Jesus is Born; Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive, White, Vellum; Ink: Black Stazon, White Craft; Accessories: Hodgepodge Hardware, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, White Embossing Powder, Purely Pomegranate Ribbon.

Love how you did this card. Hope you don't mind if I c.a.s.e. your idea. You have inspired me. I also love this stamp set, but shy away because of the coloring!
