Christmas is 53 more days from today! It is getting closer to the day we will celebrate the birth of our King of kings, Jesus Christ. God given him many names and one of the names is He is Immanuel, means God is with us.
“Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel.
which means ‘God is with is.”
(Matthew 1:23, Isaiah 7:14; 8:8-10)
Isn’t that amazing? God is with us! Literally He was, is and will always be with us through the birth of Jesus Christ and His presence in our lives!
On my Christmas card today, I found this cute nativity scene digital stamp from Sami Stamps. It is called Our Little King. I printed it out after I resized it big enough to fit on my A2 card. Then I colored it with Crafter’s Companion – Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils, Primary Colors. After that I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors.
For the background card, I created a galaxy look background with Distress Mini Ink: Picked Raspberry, Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves and Mustard Seed. I added the white paint splatters with a toot brush and a medium round paint. I also added some splatters of water and wiped it with paper towel. And final splatters are some Shimmerz Gold Paint with medium round paint brush. I know… lots of splatters on this card background 😀
The stamp I used is from Joy Clair – A Child Is Born, one of the new stamp sets released this month. I heat-embossed the sentiment with Ranger White Embossing powder. Before I stamped the sentiment, I make sure the background dry well by heat it up with Craft Heater, so the embossing powder won’t stick.
Once the background is ready and stamped, I added the colored digital image with 3D foam tape for some dimensional. I do not think this card need more embellishment because I want the center of every thing is the baby Jesus, Joseph and Mary, and the sentiment.
That’s my mixed-media card today and thank you for visiting me today! Have a fabulous blessed day!
