Today’s card is the second of four that I made for the Rising Stars card swap, using the Night in Bethlehem Bundle. You can see more here and here. For this card I used the rich Fresh Fig and Very Vanilla. The Bethlehem Thinlits Dies make it so easy to cut out the images. And the sentiment features the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.


Here’s what I made:

Night of Bethlehem stamp set Edgelit Dies, Christmas card, Rising Star swap, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • 2 pieces of Very Vanilla CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ (one layer for the front and one piece for the inside)
  • Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″

Stamped with the Night in Bethlehem stamp set:

  • sentiment in Fresh Fig ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS
  • people in Fresh Fig ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS
