Stable Nativity Ornament And Greenery White on White Card

Happy Tuesday Cottage Cutz Friends!
Melinda here with you, and today I am sharing an elegant yet very easy Christmas themed card I created featuring the Stable Nativity Ornament and Christmas Greenery dies from this year's amazing Christmas release!
My card is a standard A4 card and the completed size measures 4.25 x 5.5. It is a side folding card with a white cardstock base.  

I started by cutting my card base and then a corresponding white mat. I ran it through my machine with a small swiss dot embossing folder to give the mat some texture. Texture plays a larger part when creating a card that is tone on tone... or in this case white on white :-).

Once I adhered the mat to the card base, I added some large glue dots towards the bottom center of the mat. See photo above.

I proceeded to cut out some of the various foliage from the Christmas Greenery die all in white. I then started placing them on the bottom of the card and used the glue dots to press them down on the end. Doing this keeps the die cuts "loose" on the other end and gives them a feel of being loose and gives them more movement. I finished by adding three little flat back pearls on the holly leaves instead of the dots themselves.

I then die cut the Stable Nativity Ornament out a couple of times and layered them together to give them some strength. I added some pop dots to the bottom to give them some lift. I then added that to the scalloped stitched square die from that set. To the top I added a small organza bow and a little pearl in the center. I then adhered all of that to the top of the card...and voila! All done! I purposely did not put a sentiment onto the front of this card. I wanted to let the dies speak!

Here is one last look at the completed card. I think this card turned out super cute!
