Bethlehem Journey

Hi Crafters.  Here is a Christmas card I made today. Very time consuming, but so much fun!!!

Everything on my card is from Fun Stampers Journey. 
My stamping first started with with the Vintage Notes Background stamp with Oatmeal Cookie onto Buttercream Cardstock cut to size.

I then stamped the buildings on the right side and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Then using PanPastels, I colored in the sky and the sand. Because I am making kits with this for my Etsy Shop, I set the PanPastels with hairspray. 

I then took a small amout of white Gesso and watered it down and splattered it with a paint brush to look like stars.  I stamped the star and heat embossed with white ep and colored in with glue and clear glitter. 
This was then mounted on a slightly larger piece of Journey Brushed Gold Cardstock, then onto the Buttercream Cardstick Base. 

Mary & Joseph were stamped with Black Licorice ink, colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut.

This is gorgeous!! I had to zoom in to see the musical score on the "sand" section, but I bet in real life it is subtle but fabulous!! Love the image as I always love seeing cards that represent the TRUE meaning of Christmas. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
