Misty Moonlight Cardstock
Cinnamon Cider Cardstock
Old Olive Cardstock

Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
Multipurpose Liquid Glue
Mini Glue Dots

Seaside Spray Ink

I started with our standard A2 Cardbase in Misty Moonlight Cardstock.
I used our Whisper White Cardstock measuring 4″×5 1/4″ and sponge daubers to blend Seaside Spray Ink (bottom) and Misty Moonlight Ink (bottom) together.
I stamped top portion of manger, Mary, Joesph and Baby Jesus. Sheep and Donkey in Momento Black Ink and used the Nativity Dies to cut them. I hand colored and highlighted them with the Stampin’ Write Markers.
I die cut the palm trees and back portion of the manger using my Nativity Dies.
I used Versamark, white embossing powder and heat tool to heat emboss the sentiment from the Peaceful Nativity Stamp Set.
I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the top and bottom portion of the manger together and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue adhere the manger to the Matte Base of the card.
*TIP* Before I adhered the manger down I glued the layers of the palm trees together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered them to the Matte Base using the manger and heat embossed sentiment as a guide for placement.
I secured Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus to the bottom of the manger with Stampin’ Dimensionals and secured the silver star to the top of the manger with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using my the putty end of my Take Your Pick Tool I picked up the Snowflake Sequins and placed them on the Mini Glue Dots and used the piercer end of the tool to remove and place randomly in the empty spaces around the Nativity Scene.
For the inside of this card I cut Whisper White Cardstock to measure 4″×5 1/4″ and used a sentiment from the Unto Us Stamp Set (Item #153335)
