All is Calm

*So thrilled to be a Top Pick at Stampin' Royalty this week!*

I love the retired stamp set, Come to Bethlehem.  It has such wonderful images and suits the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series paper perfectly.  It also works beautifully with this week's sketch at the Stampin' Royalty challenge.

For this card I chose to use two of the patterns from the Designer paper.  Both had the Lost Lagoon colour in common and so I decided to use Lost Lagoon as my base.  On top of that I layered a piece of Naturals White which I first embossed using the Decorative Dots embossing folder.  Before adhering it to the base, I added a strip of the Designer paper and some 1/8" Silver Ribbon simply tied towards the lower right side.

For the larger shape with the curved corner, I chose another design from the Designer paper and backed it with a piece of Lost Lagoon.  I cut the circle from Whisper White using my 5th from the smallest circle framelit and backed it with a piece of  Soft Sky cut with my 2 1/2" circle punch.  I stamped a portion of the image from the Come to Bethlehem stamp set onto the Whisper White in Lost Lagoon ink.  Then I cut a star from the Silver Foil paper and attached that above the buildings using Dimensionals.  I also attached the circle to the card using Dimensionals.

For my sentiment I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, using Lost Lagoon ink on Soft Sky cardstock and then cut it out with my Word Window punch.  I backed it with Silver Foil cut with my Modern Label punch and then attached it using Dimensionals.
