Nativity Card using Christmas Wishes Stamp Set

Card Instructions
Card Base: 10.5" x 5.25"
Emboss the front of the card using: Swiss Dots - Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Cut the following out using a Cricut Machine and Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge
Nativity - 3"
Sheep - 2.25"
Donkey - 2.25"
Camel - 2.25"
Manger - 2.5"
Baby Jesus - 2.5"
Cut the following out using a Cricut Machine and Christmas Cricut Cartridge
Star - 3.5"
After cutting out everything use a sanding block or ink to distress the edges so the whole image will appear better. I sanded Core'dinations paper because the core of the paper is another color so it creates a nice effect. On the other papers I used Tea Dye ink from PaperTrey Ink. Then I stamped "Silent Night" using My Pink Stamper's Christmas Wishes Stamp Set. The stamp paper can be adhearded to the inside of the Nativity Stable. I adhered all the pieces using Scotch Quick Dry adhesive & foam squares. You need a strong adhesive so the paper will stick to the embossed card base. Sorry when I shot my video of this card, my camera batteries weren't charged. So it died about 4 times, because I would charge them for about an hour and then film some more. So I'm sorry the video is a bit pieced together but most the details are there.

  9. I left a similar comment at MPS, but I wanted to be sure you saw it:
    Angela, I absolutely LOVED your video! I purchased the Gypsy on cyber Monday from, but it is still in the box (yes, I am that intimidated. Court told me I *needed* a Gypsy...she is dragging me kicking and screaming into the 21st century LOL!) Thank you for giving such detailed instructions while using your Gypsy; it helped me be a bit less fearful. Your card is absolutely wonderful!!!
