Manger Christmas Card

I have one last Christmas card to show you and it is my favorite. I really wanted this one to have a rough look. Like it has been in the stable with baby Jesus. I used a stipple brush to distress the Kraft card stock with Cocoa ink. I dug the fake straw out of my craft closet. I've had it forever and I have no idea what it is called.

In case you can't read the text, it says "A baby, a manger, a bright and shining start; A shepherd, an angel, three kings from afar, A savior, a promise from heaven above --- The story of Christmas is filled with God's love." On the inside of the card is stamped "Joy to the World".

Recipe (all Close To My Heart):
Kraft, Cocoa and Colonial White card stock
Milepost shapes
Archival Black and Cocoa ink
My Acrylix Christmas Story
Hemp and "straw" (not CTMH)

I hope you have enjoyed my parade of Christmas cards over Labor Day weekend. So, now that you have seen them all, what is your favorite?

  1. Hi, Rebecca! So nice to meet a Show-Me state CTMH'er via blogging! I love how you used the Kraft paper and the hemp and straw for your manger card--so pretty! You've inspired me to start thinking "Christmas cards" too! (Email me and tell me where you're located, okay?!)
