Silent Night

 Good morning how are we all this morning. My first post for today is another of my Clean & Simple (CAS) cards. This is my all time favourite stamp by Stampin Up and it retired this year. It's called Silent Night and the name says it all. I love Christmas time not just for the food, gifts and dizzy water but also for the meaning of Christmas. I love seeing the children in the church and when they act out the nativity it is heart warming. I know believing is not everybodies cup of tea but it is mine and I am very proud of it.
I get all soppy at Christmas too.

Anyway this image just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

 I masked around the embossed frame with post it notes and then stamped my image using SU basic grey. When dry i added Arlenes tacky glue and added loads of glamour dust. I also have SU sparkling diamonds but I just love looking at them too nice to use lol.
The edges of the card have been cuttlebugged using Organic flourish embossing border folders. The frame I have used is called Grace's Frame such a versitle folder that I will be ussing a lot me thinks.

Here is a close up of the glamour dust and embossing.

Stunning card Ali. I know a few people who have this stamp and it always makes gorgeous cards. I'm loving your CAS cards.

I agree with you about seeing the children doing their nativity plays. I can remember having to kit mine out with towels and tea-towels and the snake belt round the head-dress lol! Catriona takes Poppy to Sunday School so maybe she'll be doing something this Christmas, that will be fun lol!!
