Joy in Bethlehem

Wednesday, November 24, 2021
It's the last Wednesday in November!! I've got a good start on my Christmas preparations although haven't started my baking yet - and I usually go overboard in that department. 

The wonderfully crafty Chrissy is our hostess at Little Red Wagon and she wants us to "Cut It Out"! Fortunately, this doesn't mean that she wants us to quit crafting. In fact, quite the opposite! Chrissy is looking for Christmas (or winter) projects created with die-cuts.

My entire card is made with die cuts - from the mat, the arch window, the sentiment, the star and the little town of Bethlehem. I did create the background with some blended distress inks - but otherwise, just cut it all out!

After taking the photo of my finished card and looking at the photo, I realized that my cuts are in the wrong order. I seem to have the gated wall in the middle of Bethlehem instead of around it! I have actually entered Bethlehem through the gate in the wall so I have no excuse to have not realized this! I am still happy with how the card turned out though.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then use your dies to cut out words or images for your own Christmas/winter-themed projects.


I'll be linking up my card in the latest Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Really, objectively, can one actually go overboard on holiday season baking? :D

I kid, but only slightly. The classic adage of "the more the merrier" applies in spades at this time of the year, including on the kitchen creation front.

On the paper crafting front, you've created such a peaceful, strikingly lovely festive greeting here. It is as timeless as December 25th itself.

Happiest one month countdown until the big day, my friend.
