Prince Of Peace

Pin It For the month of November our fearless leader Pam has challenged us to do "The Holidays CAS (clean and simple). If you are interested in playing along and winning a stencil of your choice (or our large paste spreader) and a jar of embossing paste (your choice) click HERE to discover the details.

I started by using embossing paste and the wonderful word stencil. (LX 7004 Prince of Peace)  After I spread the paste and while it was still wet, I covered this layer with silver glitter from Art Glitter.

Next, on a scrap piece of paper, I used crackle paste and embossed the nativity. (LL 3019 Joseph / Mary)  Once the crackle was dry I used my fingers to apply some various inks.  To be honest, I don't recall what ink I used to distress the crackle.  I then cut out the various piece and set aside.

I mounted the background on cardstock and attached ribbon to the card front.  I used raised adhesive dots to attach the cut out people.
And here is my finished card...
I hope you all liked this card.  I think the colors and the style were just fun.  Hope everyone is remembering  the "Reason for the Season"

Merry Christmas...
