Slimline Nativity

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

It is Pam sharing with you today!

Our new release for Christmas is available for purchase today!!  It has 40 darling dies that would make gorgeous cards, gift tags or toppers for a gift bag.  In this new release there are 4 beautifully detailed slimline dies perfect for those of us who love making that style of card.  Today I am using one of them called the Slimline Nativity w/Wisemen.

Designer Steps:

1.  Using the Slimline Nativity w/Wisemen cut out a piece of gold foil card stock
2.  Cut your base slimline I used a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 base in kraft card stock.  Cut a piece of snowy DP 3 1/4 x 8 1/4.  And finally for the frames I used the Nested Stitched Rectangle Slimline.  I layed the largest one down on my cutting surface and then evenly tucked in the second from the largest and cut.  I did this twice to create a more sturdy frame and glued them together
3.  Glue the snow DP to the card front next add the Nativity scene and last add dimension strips to the frame and pop it on

4.  To make the flowers I used the Christmas Farmhouse Floral die.  I used white card stock and cut 2 of the larger ones and 3 of the smaller ones.  I cut the centers out of the gold foil card stock.  Also cut out one of the branches of leaves in green card stock.  To give the flowers a little curve I used my stylus and some foam.  Rub the backs of the flowers then flip over and push down in the center
5.  Arrange 3 flowers in the right corner of the card.  And place one in the upper left corner.  To finish the card stamp your sentiment in VersaMark and emboss with gold powder
