Card and Ornament set

Here is a little card and ornament set I  created with the new Bethlehem set from Designed2Delight.  It came together quickly and easily and would make a nice little gift.


Here is a close up of the card.  I used copics to color the image and accented the star with stickles.  The die cut was sponged while still in the die to get the look of the sky and sand.  The layout is from a sketch on Paper Craft Planet.


Here is the ornament.  I took the photo outside on my pine tree.  The sky is a darker blue in real life and looks like a night time sky. 


As you can see, I'm still plugging along on Christmas gifts and cards.  Probably will be right up until the 24th.  I thought I was ahead of the game, making cards all year long.  I had a big box, but decided to mail them to the soldier we sponsor in Afghanistan. I'm sure he and his fellow soldiers will enjoy them, and I love Christmas, so I don't mind making more cards. 

Thanks for dropping by!  Hope you are having a great week.

Kathy, gorgeous! OK, I get that you have four kids and don't get how you find the time to create, but how do you do all that and surf the internet for the fab sketches, etc?
I need some of your youthful exuberance to get it all done!!!!

Stunning! This layout is interesting, but the focus is still on the image...just perfect! I like how the image is cropped on the edge of the card....

What a lovely thing to do, I'm sure your soldier was thrilled with his box. These are pretty, it's good to see a traditional image too.
