Golden Nativity

I love an opportunity to start making Christmas cards well ahead of time.

Last year I started making them about March, and tried to create around ten a month. I ended up with far more than I could use myself, and consequently sold some to friends, raising £60 for Cancer Research UK.

For this I fished out some Clarity nativity stamps I hadn't had a chance to use yet, paired them with a Clarity line sentiment, and dug down and found my very first pot of embossing powder (gold tinsel) and accompanying pad. I think they may both have come in a very old DoCrafts goody bag! I do like the added sparkle of the tinsel.
