Miracle In The Manger / Cud W Stajence

Christmas Blessings to all! 

It's Christmas Eve which means that this evening I will be celebrating Christmas festivities with my family. 

In Poland our main festivities take place on Christmas Eve (that's also when we get to open the pressies) and my dearest Hubster lets me keep this tradition at our home as well.

So it's only right that on this special day I would share an inspirational card that captures the true meaning of Christmas - the Miracle in the Manger. And here is my offering.

I stamped Stampendous Barnyard Nativity stamp with Ganache StazOn Mini ink onto kraft paper. Then I stamped partially inked Christmas Cottage over it to frame the nativity scene which I then coloured with Inktense pencils. 

I also stamped the holly leaves and pinecones twice so I could cut them out and pop them onto the image over some 3D Foam Squares.

My sentiment comes from the Hope Verses clear stamp set. The snowy backdrop was added with DecoArt's Snow-Tex sprinkled with Silver Frantage Crushed Glass Glitter and toned down with dabs of Ranger's Mushroom Color Wash. I also added a light misting of snow with Dylusions White Linen ink spray. The papers and cardstock are from Papermania, adhered with E-Z Runner. To finish, I added May Arts ribbon, jingling bells, epoxy buttons, some cut-out inspirational words and a touch of Glossy Accents over the berries.

I'd like to take this opportunity to send you all my warmest Christmas wishes. Let this festive time be happy and peaceful, spent with the people you love the most. Let your heart be filled with compassion and take joy in every day miracles.

Dla Polskich Czytelników, takie mam oto życzenia bożonarodzeniowe. Niech ten świąteczny czas będzie pełen szczęścia i pokoju, spędzony w otoczeniu najbliższych Wam osób. Niech Wasze serca wypełni wrażliwość na drugiego człowieka oraz radość z małych codzinnych cudów.

Big festive hugs
