O Holy Night!

Hi there, and welcome to July! Isn't it just crazy how quickly the time is going by? My July header is one of the fun flowers in my backyard that has just started to bloom - Crocosmia.

My card today is for the Design Team of Christmas Crafts Creations and our theme for July is to include a Christmas Character! 
My card this month includes six Christmas characters - Mary, Joseph, Jesus and the three wise men!! I chose to use the Inkadoo stamp set O Holy Night for my card. I used three of the images on the outside of the card and I used the verse and the angel on the inside.

I brayered a 3" x 6 1/2" piece of glossy white cardstock with the Soothing Sunset ink pad to created my sunset background.

The three stamps were arranged in the stamp positioner and then stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.

In order to dry off the ink,  I added Sparkle embossing powder and heat embossed, this gave the images a bit of a sparkle too.

This panel was added to a piece of purple cardstock which was then layered to a white card base. I used orange and white baker's twine for the ribbon across the top to finish the card off.

I hope you've enjoyed my share today? I also hope that you will upload a card to the Christmas Craft Creations Challenge. There is a fun little stamp set to be won this month. All Christmas characters are welcome! Pop over to the challenge and check out who the other designers have used as additional inspiration.

Below are the items I used to create my little Christmas scene:
