Nativity for Christmas Card Club

Good morning.  Usually I am a day earlier with my post - this time I am a day late!  I just don't know what happened to the week!  I was very surprised to lose a day ... lol!.   I suddenly realised it was Sunday, the day  I post my DT card for IA&S and I had missed Saturday and this post!  Anyway I'm here at last - with apologies to Mary whos turn it was to host.  She chose Nativity which is great for me.  I decided to make two cards which can be used for children.

My Cards

Two A6 cards one landscape and the other portrait. Boringly flat I'm afraid.  I did layer them but glued to base card, no t raised on foam pads. A little glitter and some Dovecraft 3D pearl effects to the angel's holly wreath and I was done. Sentiments were computer generated on both cards.

Thanks for looking in.

Take care.

Hi Christine
Both are super. Flat is good for posting but they are still fantastic. Just wondering how you managed to print the white sentiment on the blue card lol!
Best wishes.

Two wonderful cards, christine. I too am making flatter cards this year. I did manage to find some very. very thin pop dot squares which allow me to raise two extra layers if I use stickles instead of diamond bling.

i like both of your images here and think they will be fabulous for children (or adults too)!

Hi Cristine,
2 wonderful card and those images are really very sweet and lovely.
I don't think they are boring being flat as they look so lovely they don't need anything else.
Love and big crafty hugs from my house to yours. Jenny L.

I'm afraid I also missed a few of your cards, I'm sorry about that! You have made great cards lately!
Last week we went to friends (with our whole family of 10...). They are living in Sevenoaks and we had a wonderful time over there and in London. The weather was fine so we enjoyed everything and had a good time!
