O Holy Night

 It's Thursday and the last Thursday in November already!!!

             Can you say full out Christmas card making mode anyone!?! 

My mom loves the Nativity scenes. Whether it is ceramic, wooden, a picture - a nativity scene is her favourite thing at Christmas.........well that and snowmen but the nativity scene is her all time fav. 

When I saw the "Let Us Adore Him" stamp from High Hopes Stamps I knew it would be perfect for her Christmas card along with the O Holy Night sentiment.

 I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and since I had my cuticle scissors out from my card yesterday I decided to fussy cut this one too - I was on a roll after all lol. I grabbed my ink blending supplies and created my background. 
Something new for me - I also played with the new Nuvo Crystal Drops. You can use them to fill in areas or to make your own enamel dots. Note - make your enamel dots on something other then your card - if you mess them up putting them directly on the card ......well let's just say, mine aren't perfect but they are okay. I also used these drops to add some stars to the sky - a few are a little larger then I would like but I like the effect. Nuvo drops were also added to the star from the Shepard's Awe stamp also from High Hopes Stamps.
