Christmas Card Club - Mixed Media

It's time for Christmas Card Club challenge again and our challenger, Mary, asked for mixed media cards.  I've used the striking Stampin Up dies Bethlehem edgelits which coordinate with the stamp set Night in Bethlehem.  If you like nativity cards then this is a set of dies and stamps for you.  

To create my sky I used colour washes and spattering along with some clear wink of stella all on water colour paper.  I've die cut the buildings from night of navy card stock and the star from silver foil card.  The sentiment is from a retired set Good Greetings also Stampin Up and then from the Night in Bethlehem set I've heat embossed the shepherd with black embossing powder.  

A night of navy matting layer sits on top of a thick white card base. The layers of buildings are given some depth with baby stampin dimensionals. 

You can visit the other ladies in our challenge club via the button at the top of my blog.  

Thanks for visiting me today.

Love the Bethlehem scene the way you've done it with the shadowed buildings and the dark blue c/s. That is one fabulous sky to show off the shining star too. Great take on the mixed media challenge. TFS & Hugs
