Believe Nativity

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 
 My card today is from Part 2 of the 2018 Christmas release. There are 29 new designs in this release.

And, speaking of new releases Christmas Part 3 has just been released along with some new Halloween dies. You will find these in the online store at a 25% off sale. There is also an exclusive die that can only be purchased through the online store. Check out the sweet Dakota the Husky die

The DT will be showing samples soon with these new dies. Today though I am using the Believe Nativity die. So let's get started with some details on how I created this card.

Step 1:  I started my card this week with a card sketch. This one is from the Card Maps site. It was their January 2018 sketch and it's a square layout. My card measures 5 1/2" square.
Step 2: I had this starry patterned paper in my stash and I knew I was going to use it when I created a card with this Nativity die. So that determined my card colors of navy and white.
navy blue card base: 5 1/2" square
white layering panel: 5 1/4" square
navy patterned paper: 5" square
 I cut the Believe Nativity in white cardstock. I decided to keep everything square on my card. So I used the largest die from the pierced wide square frame set for the rectangle element on this sketch.
For the flag banner element, I stamped part of a silent night sentiment. It was on one line but with the help of my MISTI and masking tape, I converted it to a 2 line sentiment.
Step 3: Now that all the card elements are cut and stamped it 's time to start card assembly. Affixed the navy patterned paper to the white cardstock layer panel, then the wide stitched square frame with double sided tape.
Secured the banner with dimensional adhesive. I moved the banner more to the right of the square frame in order to allow enough room so the image wouldn't cover the sentiment.
Next up is the image. I used a combination of glue dots and dimensional adhesive to secure it on the panel.
 Step 4: To complete my card, the image panel was added to the navy blue cardstock base. I wanted to add a few sequins but there was no room on the banner so I placed them around the square frame. I like the little touch of bling.

Well, that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use the Believe Nativity. This is a card that wouldn't be hard to create multiples of for Christmas. See you next Saturday!

Very pretty, Mary! I like the background paper you used -- it works really well with the Nativity die-cut.
