Oh Little Town of Bethlehem


Another Christmas card to share today.  For this one I used part of a stamp called 'Oh Little Town of Bethlehem' from Inkwell Stamps - I masked off the words underneath the buildings before I stamped it.

I created the background using Cool Peri Adirondack ink sponged on card and then overstamped with a small snowflake from my new Craftwork Cards wreath stamp set.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Challenge Up Your Life - 'Christmas in Summer'
Totally Papercrafts - 'inspired by a song' (Oh Little Town of Bethlehem)
Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - 'Christmas in August'
52 Christmas Throwdown - 'Christmas carol or hymn' (Oh Little Town of Bethlehem)
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - 'make your own patterned paper'
