18 February 2022 MTTCC Blog #28 Nativity Christmas Theme Card for DT

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This posting is to share my design team inspiration card for the February 18, 2022 challenge #28 for My Time To Craft Christmas blog. The theme is Nativity

Echo Park's Away in the Manger collection gets the credit for this card. I've used many of its element stickers and the focal panel section from it's Nativity cardstock side A. Blue pearl gems, navy blue with silver trim ribbon are additional accents. Yellow and mid-blue cardstocks are from Pen + Gear. Black ink edges the yellow CS. The mid-blue is the oversized card base (folded 8.5" x 11" sheet). Damask patterned paper from The Paper Studio is just background filler to block out printer scanner light. 

Christ the Savior Is Born Christmas card= this flat card has a full manger scene minus some shepherds

MTTCC's #28 theme is Nativity; Christmas cards only

CARD #2 for MTTCC (DT is a small group currently, so I made a 2nd card)= this one is simpler


1. red ink was applied only to the outer edge of the flat card base

2. taupe flat card and matching envelope (The Paper Source website)

3. cut-apart panel is from Echo Park's Away in the Manger collection; other elements of that collection were used for card 1

4. a small section of white glitter cardstock (Pen + Gear) used to outline the top left corner

5. the yellow-cream cardstock mat has been in stash several years; the yellow-green scrap is a newer purchase found within a package of scraps/off-cuts packaged by Crafter's Choice

6. red heart crystal gems, red heart sticker, and white glitter snowflake sticker (stash supply)
