Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

 Hello Everyone!  It is time for another Inspired Stamps DT Thursday Christmas card.  This week I chose the HLO Nativity stamp set.  It comes with the manger, star, baby Jesus, Joseph, Mary and three sentiments, one of which I used on the bottom of the card, one I stamped on the inside of the card.  The third is a scripture.  I stamped the manger on the kraft card and woodgrain embossed and inked, but then decided to repeat and cut out the manger and pop dot to the background for more dimension.  I stamped colored (Copic, always seems to be my go to for coloring) and cut out all the images and attached to card.  I didn't know what colors to use for Mary and Joseph, but decided I wanted them to match.
Here is the full front of the card:  the sentiment reads Celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus!
I used a little brown and white Martha Stewart baker's twine.  I now have lots of color choices and hope to be using more and more in the future.  It is a simple card with a BIG message.  I hope you enjoy.  I have about 60 more Christmas cards to make before I am through for this year.  I love making Christmas cards, but my schedule always has me making them at the last minute.  Hope you all have a great day and you find time to get crafty. Please make sure to check out the other talented DT blogs for their creations this week and the inspired stamps blog for more ideas.
