Angel Nativity Tree

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

Well, it's only 10 days until Christmas. Hope all your preparations are going according to schedule. Mine came to a halt this week because I came down with a cold. I am better now.

So, I  am frantically trying to make up for lost time. Today my plan is to finish addressing my Christmas cards and get them to the post office. Then move onto the tree in my living room. It's up but I haven't decorated it yet. Once that is done my decorating will be finished and then I can move onto gift wrapping and baking. 

Since my day is so full and we have a Christmas dinner to go to tonight, let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog

I used the Angel Tree Nativity die to complete my card. This die is so pretty so I tried to keep the card relatively simple. I don't usually make black & white cards for Christmas, but I had this designer paper from Stampin'-Up that I wanted to use. It has the words from different Christmas carols in French, German and English. I thought I could pair it with both black & silver cardstock as an accent.

To get a black border around the image panel I made a mask and sponged instead of adding cardstock. I didn't want to cover up more of the words on the designer paper. The sentiment is from a set by PaperTrey ink. 

I did sponge a little yellow around the manger to create a soft glow. My card was completed by adding a few sequins. Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time...…..God bless.
