The Meaning of Christmas

     When it comes to Christmas there are so many beautiful stamps to choose from.....so to sit and make a card is always challenging and fun as I play and decide what image and sentiment to use.  Ones I send personally will always reflect the reason for the season with a sentiment or image that refers to the Greatest Gift ever in the birth of Jesus.  I just loved this image from Inkadinkadoo and the sweet sentiment by Morning Star Stamps - "The setting was humble, the cast was divine".  Inside I used a Stampabilities sentiment "May the glory of Christ's birth bring you joy and hope at Christmas time and always"......

     I made a few cards using this stamp and some great paper I found, Simple Elegance (with foil) by Paper Studio.....I colored the images with Copics.  This is a beautiful and fun image that can be used and layered in various ways.....truly can't decide which is my favorite, but the one below is going to be entered into the challenge over at Stampin Sisters in Christ, Challenge 120, Luke.

Materials used:  Inkadinkadoo Stamp, Stampabilities "Glory of Christ" sentiment stamp, Morning Stars Stamp sentiment, Copics, Embossing Folder, Nestabilities dies, Card stock.  

Challenges:  Stampin Sisters in Christ #120, CHNC #51 Anything Goes for Christmas, Marks Finest Paper, Christmas Stampin' for the Weekend, Christmas
