Peace at Christmas

Day 2 on the blog ...

It looks like this blog is now off the starting blocks.

I will not promise to post a card every day, but hopefully I'll be able to manage 2 or 3 a week.  Honestly, I didn't realise just how much I missed crafting until I started making a couple of cards again. I had great fun heat embossing this acetate!

Today's card is for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown (01-16)
This week the challenge is a sketch....

Yes, Christmas IS a long way off, but it is never too early to start getting those cards together.
I hope I've done the sketch justice.

I've used Clarity Stamps throughout the card, all heat embossed with Stampendous detail gold embossing powder. 
Ah! Except for the tiny stars on the nativity image which were hand drawn with a Signo gold gel pen.
This is an 8" x 8" card and the front has been split with a piece of heat embossed acetate.

I hope you like it.

I like your take on the sketch. The use of the clear acetate is very clever. Very elegant. Thanks so much for playing along with our sketch challenge at 52CCT this week!
