Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to Team Stamp It Groups Christmas in July Theme Blog Hop! 

Whether you hopped onto my Blog from one of my teammates or started with my blog, I'm awfully glad you "hopped" by.

This card was inspired by a card made by Sam from Mixed Up Craft.  Their card was a bit larger than this one, but I wanted it to fit in an A2 envelope, so I scaled it down a bit.
The card base is Night of Navy cardstock.

The nativity scene is from the Peace to You stamp set and has been stamped in Starry Sky ink onto Basic White cardstock.

I had a couple of spots where the Starry Sky ink didn't adhere well to the Basic White cardstock, however, this was not a problem.  By using a Blender Pen, I was able to easily touch-up and fill in the spots that did not ink well.

Once stamped, the white areas were colored with Stampin' Blends.  The scene was then fussy cut around the outside edges and adhered to the card base using Stampin' Seal.

Kraft Paper was used for the stable.

The sentiment on the front of the card is from the Hope & Peace stamp set and has been stamped in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder.
Here's a look at the back of the card.  The sentiment on the back of the card is also from the Hope & Peace stamp set. The sentiment has been stamped in VersaMark ink then heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card today, if you leave a comment on my blog, and include your name and #stampitcontest in your comment, your name will be entered into a drawing to win the A Million Thanks Card Kit.
