Silent Night

I've been quietly trying to add to my Christmas card stash this year in an attempt to avoid the mad rush that usually ensues when November rolls around and I realize I don't have enough cards made.  To that end I used a brand new die that allowed me to play along with the Silent Night challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown and the Just Add Something New challenge at Just Add Ink.

I've been obsessed with Nativity scene dies lately and have purchased a few recently.   This one I got after the 2018 season but I think it's a great addition to my stash and am looking forward to using it this year.  I love how it makes a great silhouette when cut in black.  I layered it onto this fabulous watercolor wash patterned paper and with the gold glimmer star I think I've got a great Christmas card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper:  Solar White (Neenah); Black Licorice, Watercolor Wash Brights (My Favorite Things); gold glimmer (Recollections)
Accessories:  Wise Men die (Tim Holtz/Sizzix); Holy Stars die (Simon Says Stamp)

Wow, what a gorgeous scene, Jen! I love the detail in the die cut and pairing it with the water color paper makes for a fabulous Christmas card. Might need to go look for this myself as I had a similar Nov/ Dec rush. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.
