My Craft Spot Stamp Release Day Four

Welcome to Day Four of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party!!  I hope you've been enjoying the sneak peeks of the new stamp sets as much as I have enjoyed creating projects to share with you!  Each day this week, EVERY design team member will be sharing a project made with one of Kimberly's five new stamp sets.  My Craft Spot will also be showing photos of the projects and offering prizes just for commenting!  And on Saturday, we have a fun blog hop planned - with prizes at EACH stop along the way!! 

Today's stamp set release is called "Merry Christmas".  I made an elegant card to reflect on the first Christmas.
This card is a bit larger than my usual - measuring 5x6.5.  I cut the frames for my image and sentiment using Elegant Edges. The little baby Jesus and manger image is from Christmas Village.  I embossed the background of the card using a Cuttlebug Oriental Weave folder.  I also embossed the frame under the manger with a Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl folder.  The photo corners were punched with an EK Success punch.  I finished things off by adding some half pearls by the sentiment and some luxurious Wine Seam Binding from My Craft Spot.
Don't forget to head to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the Design Team inspiration - and to enter there for your chance to win today's prize: Mistletoe Seam Binding!

If you are interested in purchasing the new "Merry Christmas" stamp set, ALL FIVE sets will be available for purchase at My Craft Spot on Saturday.

Oh Wow! This is Gorgeous! I really love how you kept the colors so simple and used the beautiful textures! Sometimes, it really pays off to keep parts of the design more simple. This really shows off the beautiful ribbon and the sentiment of the card. So gorgeous!
