Serendipity Nov Blog Hop #1!

Welcome to the Nov #1 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!
If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday Nov 5 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Nov 6 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Sled! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my Christmas card, I started by making a brayered background using just the pink, purple & blue part of a Kaleidacolor rainbow pad.  The Bethlehem image was placed into my Misti & stamped several times (to get good coverage) onto the background. Since the image has a deckled look to the edges, I die cut it and the white frame layer inside using some long deckled rectangle dies. A larger black layer was attached behind then I attached the Leftover rainbow layer behind the black. The Noel was die cut once in black & once in white & stacked.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Next stop is Vickie’s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

  1. Amazing color for your background…perfect for the setting! LOVE your word layered up too!

  2. Absolutely beautiful card! I’ve always loved this Bethlehem image but was never quite sure what to do with it – I know now! And such a great idea to use the leftover brayered CS for your beautiful Angel Die cut inside your card!
