Second card for CHNC challenge 109: nativity
For my CHNC challenge 109 that starts this morning I'm asking for Christmas cards that in some way depict the nativity. It might show an image of Mary and Joseph, the manger scene, the wise men, shepherds etc or perhaps a scripture verse of phrase from a Christmas carol that refers to the nativity in some way.
There are three sponsored prizes to be won for this challenge - please go over to CHNC challenge 109 for details and, hopefully, join in.
For my second card I've used two images kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, Paper Pretties, called 'nativity' and 'wisemen' which I combined together digitally before printing out and colouring promarkers and flexmarkers. As there is quite a lot of detail in the images I printed to a size that would be right for an A5 card.
The main background paper is the reverse side of Graphic 45 Carol of the Bells paper, the turquoise patterned paper is DCWV. The ribbons (the red stuck on top of the gold) were bought this week from Lakeland - did an online order for household products and they slipped into the basket - I couldn't resist buying a few packs because they were reduced. The flowers and sentiment are from stash - the sentiment is red on gold (hard to see here) - it says 'with love at Christmas'.
