12 Days of Christmas - Day 10 Nativity Silhouettes and Card Patterns

Happy Day 10 sweet friends!!!  Today is Card Patterns Saturday and I have a fun little card based on the Card Patterns Sketch to share with you as well as a new technique!!!
Here's the sketch:

and the sponsor:

Monica was so generous to us and I was absolutely thrilled to try the art of metal sheet embossing!!  I have to say it is a wonderful technique and the results are amazing!!!  I I used Stampin Up's Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and ran the metal through my Big Shot just like a regular piece of paper and the result is a crisp and shiny embossed image!! Why haven't I tried this sooner!! Thanks Monica!!!!  I just love metal sheet embossing!

I cut out a 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" piece of Vintage Hymnal paper and punched a 1 3/4" hole in it and also punched the edge with Martha Stewart's Doily Lace Punch.
I stamped the Nativity Silhouettes with Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Ink and placed them over the punched hole so that the embossed metal would show through.  There is such a striking difference between the paper and the metal!!

Supplies Used:
Add a Little Dazzle Colored Metal Sheet
Stampin Up! Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder
Papertrey Ink Nativity Silhouettes Die and Stamps; Photo Finisher Die and Stamps
Hand Dyed Seam Binding and Glitter Star: MemrieMare
Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock
Vintage Hymnal Paper
Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Distress Ink

Thanks for stopping by!!!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
