Clean and Simple Nativity

Happy Monday!  I am so pleased to share a second card with you today using the holiday release Nativity Silhouettes from Downland Crafts.  If you missed my first card, you can find All is Calm.. here.

This card is (obviously) clean and simple and I truly love the starkness of the white, navy, and gold embossing.  I think there is something even reverent about its simplicity, keeping the focus on the nativity scene alone.  I cut the opening using an MFT die in my stash and stamped the Noel sentiment from the same Strawberry Jude Stamps set I used on my previous card.  I considered adding some ink blending, a star, sequins, something, but in the end I am glad I left it like this.  This personal struggle to add more is the problem with the CAS card.  But trust your instinct, sometimes less truly is more.  xo

  • I’m a big fan of the CAS style and most of the cards I make myself are simple and I hope elegant like yours.
