This card is a standard A2 size.
I used a template to cut a 2" square window on the front. I used an "Ironworks" embossing folder to emboss the left side of the card. It adds an elegant touch while keeping it simple. The bible passage on the front was typed on my computer at 14 pts. using Lucida Calligraphy onto white cardstock. I trimmed it down to 2 1/4" and layered it on a dark blue cardstock. I attached the sentiment to the card front using pop dots.
I also kept the inside of the card fairly simple.
I used the 2" square piece left over from the front to mount the manger diecut and star. I used three different inkpads in a dark purple, dark blue and light blue to mimic the night sky and add color to the square. The manger diecut was cut from Cricut @ 2' and directly adhered to the square. I used a silver and gold glitter pen to add some stars and a halo over the baby. I'm so happy that the pic picked up on those subtle glittery additions. I cut the star out with my Cricut @ 1 1/4" and I double embossed it using first clear and then a shimmery powder to make it stand out. I love how sparkly this star came out! I mounted it on to the square with pop dots for a 3D effect. The sentiment "Peace" was stamped using my new Tsukineko Staz On Copper inkpad. This stuff is awesome!!
And that completes this holiday card for 2013!!!
