Little Baby Jesus (#thereasonfortheseason)

Today's faith based Christmas card is another one for my #thereasonfortheseason series. If you missed the others, you can find them here.

Afterall, Jesus is the reason for the season. 

I stamped the image from the Neat and Tangled Little Baby Jesus set onto Neenah cardstock twice so I could stack them and then cut out with the matching dies. The baby Jesus portion was trimmed closer and then attached to the hay with foam tape for dimension. I prepared the background by using the smooshing on acetate technique with blueberry sky ink onto Ranger Distress watercolor card stock and then added more water with a wet brush. Splatters of Hero Arts Unicorn white ink completed the look. After cutting out the watercolor piece with a wonky stitched rectangle die, I stamped part of the sentiment directly onto the panel. The rest of sentiment was stamped onto a double ended flag which was attached with a layer of foam tape. A few stars cut from gold metallic cardstock and attached with foam dots finished it up.

Christmas Eve is one of my favorite days. My Christmas prep is done so all I have to do is enjoy the day. We will be heading out for a Church service in the early evening which is always so special and moving. I love the candle lighting, communion, the music, everything.
