Hello! I'm popping in with another card that I made with a die set that is part of the Spellbinders September release. This die set is called Rejoice Nativity etched dies and is from the Christmas Traditions collection. (Affiliate links used where possible.

Initially I struggled to come up with a color palette that I liked to use for my card. Then I remembered the Color Throwdown combo this week and thought the neutral colors would work perfectly for my card. I used the large oval die and the die that cuts out the starry background to die cut the night sky from black cardstock. I then used the oval frame and the die that cuts thee creche scene from kraft cardstock. I used just the oval die to cut silver glitter cardstock and back the night sky with that. You can't really see it in the photo, but it looks really pretty in real life. I die cut the hill background from gray and then adhered that along with the creche scene to the sky. The die set also comes with an ornament topper so I cut that from gray as well and added it to the top of my scene along with a bow tied from kraft colored twine. Mary, the baby Jesus and the shepherd were die cut from off white cardstock. I used glue to adhere Mary and the shepherd and then popped up baby Jesus with some foam tape. The piece was adhered to an off white cardstock panel and then added to a kraft card base. I added the sentiment strip that I hot foiled with my Glimmer in black foil. The finishing touch was the two little flowers that I made using gray cardstock and a die from the Christmas Blooms die set. Crystal gems from the Crystal Mix Color Essentials gems pack.
