Blue Nativity

The current Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge is "nativity".  Here's the inspiration photo:

I like the blue tones in the photo so used that to spark my card's colour scheme:

It's back to my old style of card-making - some simple stamping and heat embossing, some dp, a sentiment label attached with ribbon.  I added a bit of Stardust gel pen on the Christmas star.  Because I sell Christmas cards at my fundraiser, it's good to have a variety of styles!

Stamps - unknown nativity, Paper Smooches sentiment
Ink - ColorBox Blue
Paper - white and navy cs, star dp
Size - A2
Accessories - Stardust gel pen, Spellbinders sentiment label, blue grosgrain ribbon, clear embossing powder


  1. perfect card for your fund raiser, love the simplicity :)

  2. Great style and love the limited colour palette. One classy card x

  3. Pretty card, Susan. My favourite colour! And you're right... why do we torcher ourselves with complex cardmaking. 😂 This is beautiful in its simplicity. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. I love your monochromatic color scheme, Susan! You did a fabulous job on that silhouette stamp, not always easy even with a Misti! Love the design on this and love that stamp!

  5. It's a beautiful image Susan. Framing it in darker and adding the sparkle makes it special. xx

  6. This is so pretty, Susan! You are really getting those Christmas cards done! I think your sale will be a big hit!
