AWAY IN THE MANGER

Updated: Feb 22

Hello Digi Divas,

Like many of you I am still working on my Christmas Card list. Today I would like to share a Die cut card. Over the past week-end the Hubby and I attended a church bazaar and picked up these dies. I thought what a lovely card they would make for Christmas.

Amazing what talented people and inspiration you can find at a bazaar! It was a delightful afternoon. Come along as I experiment with my NEW dies.


AWAY IN THE MANGER MATERIALS LIST:

Hammermill 100 lb. White Coverstock WeR Nesting Circles 21 Dies

Bazzill- purple Penny Black Creative- Rejoice Die

Paper Studio-Away in the Manger Pad Manger Circle Die

Offray 1/8" Camel Satin Ribbon Shepherds Watching Die

Offray 1/4" Teal Satin Ribbon Ornament Die

Paper Pazzaz Specialty Metallic Gold (Scrap from stash)

VersaMark

Dimensional Glue OPTIONAL: Gold Twine

1/4" Tear-ific Tape

Velvet Sparkle Embossing Powder & Heat Gun

Coffee Filter


Using Hammermill 100 lb. White Coverstock I ran

one of each of my NEW dies through the Big Shot.

(I was happy they cut...)

I then ran the Circle Manger back through the Big

Shot using WeR Nesting Circle Dies, I found the one

closest to the size of the inner circle on the

ornament.



I then searched through my stash of paper and

found the perfect papers.... I cut Hammermill 100 lb.

White Cover stock to 4-1/2"x6-1/4".


Cut the Three Kings page from the Paper Studio

Away in the Manger Pad to 4-1/4"x6".


Cut the Bazzill Purple 4-1/4"x4-3/4" then angle

cut the top as shown.


Apply Tear-ific tape along the angle cut where

the Three Kings paper and Purple meet. Adhere

the Camel Ribbon and the Teal ribbon along the

Tear-ific Tape as shown.


Put a little Tear-ific tape on the Backside to wrap

the ends of the ribbon around so that it does not

ravel.




Use VersaMark on all the white Die Cuts. Apply

VersaMark around the edges of the White 4-1/2"

x6-4/1".






Set on a coffee filter, apply Velvet Sparkle

Embossing powder, tap excess off on to the coffee

filter and dump into jar. Apply the heat gun.

Repeat until all the white pieces are embossed.




We are now ready to assemble.


Apply Tear-ific tape to the backside of the Three

Kings, center and adhere to the White with the embossing sticking out from around the edges.


Using Dimensional Glue apply a small amount

on the Circle Manger Piece and adhere to the

backside of the inner circle of the ornament.


Adhere the Ornament to the front at an angle as

shown.


Using Dimensional Glue adhere the shepherds

watching in the lower right corner of the purple as

shown.




Cut a 9"x6-1/4" rectangle of Hammermill 100lb.

White Coverstock, score and fold at 4-1/4" to make

your card base.


Adhere your card front to your card base with

the fold on the left.


Using Penny Black Creative Rejoice Die on

Pazzaz Special Metallic Gold, run through the Big

Shot. Using Dimensional Glue in a small amount

on the back of the sentiment and adhere to the

card front between the ornament and the sheep

as shown. (You may need tweezers to adhere

the dots over the j & I...)


(As a last minute call, I decided to add some Gold Twine wrapped twice around the spine.)


Another beautiful card finished for my Christmas Card List! Only 18 to go! I for sure need to pick up my game.... Thank you for coming along on my experiment today. I hope you had as much fun as I did. Stop in again and see what FUN we can still have before the BIG DAY!
