First Edition Nativity Dies manger Chistmas card


Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges. This time we have 2 choices

J for Jesus 
K for Kings,

and this is the prize for the winner

I came up with this card which combines the two:-

I took a square piece of card and masked off a circle in the centre before inking in blues and purple towards the centre. I then masked off the inked part and removed the circle mask so I could ink the centre in shades of yellow. I die-cut a large circle from the centre when the ink was dry.

I die-cut the stable from some hessian using the First Edition Nativity dies and added the Nativity figures. I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto a banner die cut and added it to the top before cutting a few more circles to raise the image above the background.

It would be lovely to have you join us and you can link up your entry on the ABC Christmas Challenges blog before the 8th June.

I'd like to play along at
