Golden Light Over Bethlehem

Each year I hold a couple card making classes at my church. We take a couple hours out of our hectic schedules and enjoy making two cards. This year’s Christmas card class took place this past Saturday. To get them warmed up, I started with a simple yet stunning card that I’m sharing with you today. Tomorrow you’ll get to see their stepped-up card that features more techniques. I just love the stunning star on this one!

Dapper Bethlehem

I am trusting I’m not the only person that had completely forgotten to get any Christmas Designer Series Paper yet, so here’s a fun alternative – I searched through all my DSP and knew as soon as I saw the black and white sheet in Whole Lot of Lovely, I would sponge it with Dapper Denim to make it match! Remember that any DSP that has white or light areas can be sponged to match your project!

Dapper Bethlehem Front

Here’s a side angle to see that I glued the background die flat to the card and popped the front die cut up with Dimensionals to give it a little pop:
