Artbooking Glad Tidings card!

  Hello, friends!


Today's card is made using the Mary and Babe stamp set and the Artbooking cartridge. As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew that I was going to use this overlay from Artbooking!

For baby Jesus, I paper pieced him. This is not a quick job, so you can color him with markers or colored pencils if you want to shave some time off of this card.

Beautiful card. Very different, and the overlay is perfect. I wonder how it would look as a dark sky background with a yellow overlay - as in the 'midnight star'? possibilities abound....
