Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!  What a beautiful day to celebrate the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ our Lord!  I felt it was appropriate to share a card today that focuses on the nativity!  The true reason for the season! (Details on card are at the end of this post.)

I'm going to leave you with one of my favorite Christmas songs.  
Christmas Offering by Casting Crowns

Merry Christmas!
I hope each of you are able to bring your own Christmas Offering to the Lord, humble as it may be!

Instructions for the card:
For this card I started with the background and cut the stars using the Starfall Reverse Cut die from Frantic Stamper. I left the stars in the background because I wanted the gold star (Northern Star) to be the star that is noticed. 

To help create the scene I cut some hills for the background using two of the Stitched Scene Builder Edgers dies I wanted the Nativity (Nativity Creche) to be the center focus so I die cut it out of a dark gray cardstock.  I added the lamb from that same die set in two softer shades of gray.

The Christmas script word (Script Merry Christmas) is easy to see yet doesn't distract from the baby in the manger so that our focus is where it should be.  Just as it should be in real life.
