Church Christmas Project - Day 3 (Rejoice)


Click here for more information and a link to my Pinterest board for more cards I made in past years.

One of the things I love about this project is taking the various stamps I have collected over the years (I've done this for about 5 years, I think) and combining them in different ways.

Today's card is a great example of that. I started with a Stampabilities sentiment from Hobby Lobby (my sister always takes me there when I visit her in the US - they often have 'church' sentiments that I can't find in other places). I noticed that the top part of the sentiment provides a perfect 'ground' for my Hero Arts (Greatest Gift - appears to be reitred) stable. To add a pop of colour and shine, I sponged the bottom of the panel with Fired Brick distress ink and the glued a narrow strip of gold mirror card.

Nice nativity card. Like the sentiment and the red with the gold strip is perfect. On another subject ... I got the new Muse post and the voting post. The "here" isn't linked and when I go to the Muse blog there doesn't appear to be any cards in the gallery. In fact, I can't even see it. I'm sure it must be there. Is it my computer or a glitch on their end? Thanks for letting me know.
