Day 5 Holiday Card Inspiration!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  We are at home and enjoying a day off from school, yay for 3 day weekends!  Ariel and Carter and playing SO WELL together today!  I've been enjoying it as I have taken the opportunity to clean the house, stamp and work on wreaths!  

Today I am here with a 5th card in my 12 Days of Holiday Card Inspiration!  Do remember that I will draw a winner for a prize from one of my 12 posts!  I finally got a chance to play with my new die by Taylored Expressions, I love this Nativity die! I truly love to make Christmas cards sharing what I celebrate and believe Christmas to be about!  I love it when paper craft companies bring out products that share the real meaning on Christmas!  And I love that I am seeing it more and more lately!  I paired this die with a great Hero Arts set, Heaven's Rejoice, love the sentiments it has!

I used paper from Very Merry Christmas by Echo Park, the die cut paper is a backside, I like the look using a bit of a patterned paper brings as opposed to cardstock.  I love this nativity silhouette! This die cuts so well!  Even that staff the Shepard is holding! 

I added another new wreath to my etsy store today you can find it here.

Well I am off to make some Honey cookies with the kids, it's a Croatian recipe that my mom made all the time I was growing up and it's my first time making them with the kids!
