Silent Night, Holy Night

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. It's now 2 days before Christmas and all my gifts are wrapped. I am ready for our Christmas Day celebration.
 
I am showing a card today that I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. So let's get started with some details on how I created this card.
 
Step 1: I don't have many photos to show today but I will give the steps I used to create this card. Started by sponging my background on white cardstock with several different die inks.
I used Stampin'-Up inks- pacific point, berry burst and rich razzleberry. Once the sponging was complete, I took some white acrylic paint and a toothbrush and flicked it on the background to resemble stars.

Step 2:  I cut my image from black cardstock. I thought this would accent it nicely against the sponged background. 
I used berry burst and pacific point cardstocks to layer and as the card base. The cardstock matches my ink colors.
Berry card base:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Blue layering panel: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Sponged panel: 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Step 3: I completed the card by stamping my sentiment on the sponged background panel. The sentiment is a stamp set from PaperTrey Ink. The panels are attached with double sided tape.  Well, that's it for me for this post. I would like to extend a Merry Christmas to all my blog friends. Until next time.......God bless.
