Here's my card using A Blessed Christmas:

Isn't that image so sweet? I love that it's a cute religious, Christmas image. This set has so many fabulous images!


For my card, I simply stamped and colored it with Copics. To add a soft layer, I die-cut a the window out of vellum and stamped the sentiment from A Blessed Christmas directly on the vellum (got to love the Brilliance inks). Finally, I used the matching Blessed Icons dies to die-cut the dove. When I think of Christmas, I don't typically think of rust and black colors. ;) But, as soon as I saw these BasicGrey papers with the image, I had to go with the non-traditional colors. 

Here's a close-up:


Thanks for stopping by! Next up is my sweet and very talented friend Kalyn!
