Happy Birthday Christ the Lord

 For my post today, I wanted to share the Stained Glass Nativity card I made to celebrate the birth of Christ the Lord.
  I stamped the image onto Parchment Vellum (after first swiping the vellum with the anti-static pad), and then embossed using Queens Gold EP. I colored the image from the reverse side using Copic Sketch markers using small flicking strokes from end to end. Once each color was dry, I would blend using the next higher color. For each color , I generally used at least three colors.
  The background is called Faux Wood, and seems appropriate for a baby born in a stable. The next layer is a shimmery Gold cardstock from Paper Temptress.  I added rhinestones that were colored with Copic YR24. I added a touch of Stickles to the star and the halo.
  I cut a piece of plain white cardstock that fit just inside the brown rim of the image and attached it to the back of the vellum using spray adhesive.

Supplies I used to make this card:


Thanks for stopping by!
