Christmas Card Order - Manger #1
This is a Holy Family decor set I photographed at a garden center several years ago. I love the monochromatic feel to the image. I printed it onto white card stock but decided after ward I wanted it warmer. Out came the Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Stain and I applied it along the border and it was just what I needed. I trimmed the image along the thin border then adhered it to a dark warm green card. I was fortunate that the figures were quite tall so I placed my greeting along the bottom edge of the card front. I punched a Stampin Up Modern label punchie from dark grey green and an ivory greeting with the SU Word Window. These were adhered together then mounted to the card front with 3D foam tape.
I made some of the same design in Night of Navy.
I created the layer as a 3.5x5 photo with the greeting below. I cut a layer of gold card stock to leave a small border and adhered it to the front of a kraft colored card.
The nativity was trimmed to make it 3.5x4.75 inches and it was adhered to the onto the gold layer.
I added a strip of the gold card stock over the line between the image and the greeting.
