The Newborn King gold embossed Christmas card using Stampin' Up! products

Good afternoon on a very rainy and wet Autumn afternoon. The season has officially changed and we welcomed the rain with a soggy walk to playgroup stomping in all the puddles this morning (much to Summer's delight). But with the rain and the puddle jumping also comes Pumpkin Spice Lattes and ginger nut biscuits so I am more than happy to celebrate the season.

I have another of my September class makes to share with you today. I absolutely adore The Newborn King stamp set. I am a real sucker for nativity scene stamps and have a lovely collection of images in my craft room and this is now one of my favourites. I love the mix of the traditional manger scene mixed with the contemporary styled trees.

This card was inspired by this card I found on Pinterest. I loved the simplicity of the gold embossing on black. Not a traditionally festive colour scheme but so effective with the detail of this stamp.

I added my own detail by layering the image with Brushed Gold cardstock and a layer embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder (run through my Big Shot). I ran my Gold Encore ink pad over the embossed layer to colour the raised embossed stars. The Mary, Joseph and Jesus image was coloured with my Chalk Marker.
