Yay! it’s the night before the Holiday Catalogue launch. A brand new catty will be available to customers from tomorrow and you’re going to LOVE it! I have made a few cards this month with my pre-order goodies but have been battling the flu this last week, so not much paper crafting going on of late! It was good to finally get back to work today and enjoy the glorious sunshine for the last day of winter.
I made this card a few days ago but was lacking in a bit of ‘zing’ to write up the post and finish the tutorial. When I got home from work tonight, I managed to finally complete everything ready for publishing.
The idea for this card has been floating around in my head for a while and I like the contrast and elegance of the star against the rustic background of the stable ‘walls’ – representing the King of Kings born in such humble surroundings.
Of course the card is 3D – it’s a pop-up, z-fold – one of my favourite fancy folds! This one is a fairly simple design that’s easy to recreate.
I particularly love how the ‘hay’ in the manger turned out. Can you guess from the list of products what die I used?
