Peace Love Joy!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!

Phew...what a week.  I am SUPER happy it's the weekend!  Once I tucked the girls into bed I came down to my stamp room to play a bit.  Here is a card I created using some new goodies from Taylored Expressions!

The new Nativity Border Taylored Die is SO very beautiful!  I hadn't had the opportunity to use it during TE Previews this past release, so I was excited to sit down and play.  This is one of those dies, in my opinion, that really packs a big punch.  I kept the rest of my card super simple to let the die shine.

I started with navy cardstock and embossed the sentiment, which is from Rejoice, in white embossing powder.  I cut the Nativity Border Taylored Die out of kraft cardstock and sponged the edges a bit with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink I then popped up the nativity with Foam Tape.  I layered the navy panel onto Choice Snow White and then popped the entire panel up with more Foam Tape onto a Choice Snow White card base.

I kept the embellishments to a minimum...simply adding a twill ribbon, hemp cord bow and a navy button.  Here is a closeup of the scene.

Here is the Taylored Die I've used on my card:
