Joy To The World


The new game is up at AAA Cards Challenge Blog. The theme this time is "Silent Night, Holy Night Christmas Cards". Paper Smooches "A Blessed Christmas" came to mind immediately when I though about a design. I love the cityscape 1 die, and decided to pair it with an interesting sky in celebration of that holy night. I used Paper Smooches Power Rays die behind the cityscape silhouette and inked each piece with distress inks. I heat embossed the star, but it came out with cracks in it because of the way it sat on the rays, so I had to make another one, cut it out and lay it on top. It was tough to get the points cut properly, so don't look too close.  LOL. I mounted my little scene on a piece of white sparkle paper to give it a little zip.  I like the way it looks though you really can't see it in the picture.  


Please head on over to AAA Cards and see what my fellow DT members have come up with for this challenge, leave them a little love and be inspired to create your own beauty. From here, I am linking my card to the following Challenges:








Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge : Put a star on your project. 

Thanks for coming by today. As always, I really appreciate your comments. I hope your day is a good one.

One of the prettiest cards I've seen using the ray die, Stephanie! You've created a marvelous Bethlehem scene...and the star is a perfect touch! Oh, how I wish I could order a new cuttlebug but the shipping...no way! Shopping when we go to visit my family and bringing something new home. Fingers crossed my old 'bug has a few more cuts and cranks in it *grin*
