Cute Nativity

This week's challenge at Merry Monday is 'Nativity' and I have used this cute Lili of the Valley pre-coloured topper for my card.  I'm also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Cute', Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'Christmas Cuties' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge where 'Anything Goes'.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley Cute Squares 'Nativity Play'
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Lacy Squares'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Gold pearl, white silk
Paper: Making Cards 'Traditional Christmas' (magazine freebie)
Other: Papermania Transparent Shimmering Dots, Wink of Stella

I trimmed a piece of pale lilac snowflake paper, layered it onto gold card and attached it to the front of the card.  I die cut and embossed a piece of gold card with the Lacy Squares die.  The image was trimmed slightly so it fitted the embossed area of the gold frame, then fixed in place.  I attached a couple of small pieces of white card behind the image to give a little dimension, before attaching it to the centre of the card.  To finish I added shimmering dots to the corners of the card and highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella.
