That blessed night


Penny Black has line of stamps that have the best price point. They were around $8.00, but have recently gone up to $9.00. Still a good price. "Blessed Birthday" is one of these self contained inexpensive stamps. This stamp was always sold out and it wasn't till after Christmas I was able to get it. 

This week Christmas 24's theme is "Christmas Night". Christmas Night conjures up the thought of our first Christmas and the night of the Savior's birth. Today's card was a no brainer.

My card tip today is I stamped Bethlehem and fussy cut it, leaving a white border. I them went in with a copic marker and colored the cut edges with a marker that matched my background. This is a good tip for putting die cut images on darker card stock. See this blog post which includes a video on this technique.

You have two weeks to share what Christmas night means to you at Christmas 24. I can't wait to see what you all create.
