For Unto Us A Child Is Born

For this illuminated decoration I used Kraft paper, vanilla paper, dark brown paper, vellum paper, twine, several square dies, a rectangular die, a snowflake die, a decorative edge punch, a snowflake charm, some pearls, a silhouette image from Little Claire and some Stickles.  I used the video tutorial found HERE to make this.  Obviously, since I do not have the exact dies and don't use 'rubber' stamps (only digital), I had to wing it!

Okay...It was brought to my attention I messed up on the text of this card.  I have a 'B' where there should be a 'C' in the word called.  Obviously, that is inappropriate and doesn't work...  In order to fix this issue I needed to recreate the sentiment and fix the front of this.  So, here it is, all fixed up!  I actually like it better with the added layer.  LOL  Go figure!

I'd love to see what you make with these!
