Journey to Bethlehem

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. 

Well, it's just 3 days until Christmas. I hope all your decorating, wrapping, baking and Christmas card making is all complete. I have some baking to do yet and that will finish everything for me.

I do have a Christmas card for your viewing pleasure today though. I am using the Journey to Bethlehem die. It's a die that represents the true meaning of Christmas. So I created a very simple card today.

Step 1:  I just bought this flocked metallic paper, and I thought it would be perfect as the background for this image. I had a hard time getting a good photo of the copper metallic. But IRL it has a beautiful copper sheen. 
The metallic on the paper is copper so I cut the image from copper foil cardstock.
For my card base I decided to use a shade called crumb cake (light kraft color). It seemed to blend well with the copper. 

Card Base: 3 3/4" x 5 3/8"
Designer Paper: 3 3/8" x 5" 

I assembled card using a combination of double sided tape, glue dots and mounting tape. The mounting tape was used to lift the image off the card base. 
I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card and added a few copper stars.

That's it for me for this Saturday. Merry Christmas everyone!

Lovely card! The card stock you used is so elegant! I absolutely love the "cover plate" style dies for cards and this one is no exception, so pretty!
