The First Noel....(Well Actually It's The Second)

This was one of those cards that I thought would come together really quickly. Wrong! I knew what paper I wanted to use, I knew I wanted to use the curved rectangles with this new Nestability labels die, and I knew I wanted to take out the oval from the centre of the 'O'. That would surely all come together really quickly. Wrong!

All went according to plan until I set out to find something that would fit inside the 'O'. By the time I'd finished I felt like Goldilocks.....this stamp is too big, too wide, too cute, too modern..... I settled on a little crib scene. Made the card up and thought yuk! Not enough space around the image. So, I took it apart and started again.

And that is why my second Noel card only has one of the Wise Men!

The papers are from the beautiful GCD Studios  Joyful Peace and Dovecraft Noel Stacks. The Noel is by Clarity Stamps and the king, who is one of three, from Inkadinkado.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting
