Nativity Ornament Christmas Card Class Sample

Hello everyone, I am back with another Christmas Card Sample to share today.  As you know, I will be hosting three Christmas card workshops.  This week, and next Tuesday, I will be previewing cards you can choose to make at the workshop. 

There are two options for this year's card classes - 1) You may purchase thCTMH Christmas Card Workshop on the Go through my on-line CTMH website and bring that with you to the workshop, or make the cards at home on your own.  Or 2) you can select from the card samples posted on my blog and I will have kits ready for you to stamp and assemble at the classes. You will be able to make the cards of your choice (from the various samples) in sets of 5 for $7.00 or 15 cards for $20.00.

The classes will be offered at my home on the following dates:

  • Saturday, November 2 from 10:00 am - completed cards
  • Thursday, November 7 from 6:30 pm - completed cards
  • Sunday, November 17 from 2:00 pm - completed cards

I am going to immodestly tell you that I love this card!!  The idea to use the Nativity stamp on the ornament came to me as I was going to bed on Thursday night.  On Friday morning I realized that I could add the gold oval and and make the Nativity appear as if it is a scene inside the ornament!!  So yes, I love this simple card.  

I cut the ornament with the Artiste cartridge, using the Sparkle and Shine paper collection.  After stamping the nativity set, I inked the edges of the white oval then added the gold trim.  I used a sparkle pen and shimmer gems to finish the scene.

I added a gold top to the ornament and attached the ornament to a red matting.  After adding the sentiment and the dashes, I finished the card with a red seam binding bow.  

This Nativity Ornament card is one of five samples I have shared so far.  I will share another card on Tuesday, making a total of six cards I will be offering at this year's Christmas Card Classes.  

In the meantime, remember to look at the Christmas from the Heart gift guide and the stamp of the month!!  The items in the Gift Guide are available on a while supplies last basis.  The stamp of the month, Scandinavian Wishes, which coordinates with your Art Philosophy cartridge, is available only through October 31!

Thanks for stopping by today!!!
