About this die: Rejoice Nativity Etched Dies is part of the Christmas Traditions Collection and can be used in several different ways. Nest all eight thin metal dies to create a lovely, layered nativity scene in an ornament motif. It can create a window card or a shaker card. Use the scene itself for a wonderful focal accent.
At first glance, you'd think this scene card takes a lot of work to construct. Well, not so!
I started out with die-cutting two pieces of ovals and used the outline die to cut them out. I love using the Mirror Gold and Mirror Silver Paper. You do not need a lot of these specialty paper, however, they do make the project easy to create and SHINE like no other!
With the 3 oval dies, you get to create a starry background and detailed outline. The solid oval allows you to cut out each oval. Once you layer them up, you are good to go.
Part of the die set has a line die. I used it to create a hilly background by using vellum. I decided to ink up the background in various blue, so the oval ornament can stand out. I think it worked!
For the final touches, I added some metallic strings for the "ornament topper". They really go well with the overall design. I am so pleased how easy this card came about. In fact, I made this card when I had a hard time falling asleep. Once I finished the card, I slept like a baby!
Thanks for stopping by!
