Keeping it Clean.

Time to show a little more of the lovely Stamp Addicts Bethlehem set, which I have been playing with this. Very much on a 'nativity' type of theme, and based on silhouettes, this set really lends itself to that clean and simple look, which is a real bonus at Christmas time!

For this card, I have stamped the main Bethlehem image and coloured in the night sky with Spectrum Noirs, bfore mounting it on to the white mat with sicky pads so that it is slightly raised.

Down at the botton, the camel that you see is actually the back end of a trail of four camels, so I just inked the bit that I wanted and stamped directly on to the mat.

This was a really quickand easy card to make, but quite effective I think.....I may well be churning out a few more like this come Christmas time!!

Not one to miss out on a challenge opportunity, I am going to enter this card in to the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Clean and Simple
Make it Monday
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by today and indulging my Christmas musings. Don't forget that you will be able to see this, and loads of other lovely cards from my Stamp Addicts Design Team Mates on Create and Craft - August 9th!

  6. Bethlehem looks amazing and the way you've really drawn focus to the star and then mounted it above the card base is perfect. I always love seeing how people are resourceful with their stamps and knowing that you've altered the original wise men stamp is wonderful. :) A beautiful depiction of the reason for the season!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to link up your talent and creative ideas with us at Make It Monday!
