The Newborn King Christmas Card for Freshly Made Sketches 152

Stampin' Up! The Newborn King stamp set

Freshly Made Sketches 152, The Newborn King stamp set, Stampin' Up!, Stamp With Trude, Christmas card, Nativity,
Here's a card that I created for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge 152. #FMS152

I used a new stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2014 Holiday Catalog called, The Newborn King.

For this card I used:
Paper- Whisper White card stock, Marina Mist card stock, Night of Navy card stock, Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum
Stamp Set- The Newborn King
Ink- White Craft ink, Silver Encore
Other- Silver Baker's Twine, Oval Framelits collection, White Stampin' Embossing powder, Big Shot, Heat tool, Dimensionals, Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

*My tip for this card: The next larger size oval framelit from the size that I used to cut the nativity out, was too big. It overwhelmed the oval art piece so I used the same framelit that I cut the nativity with and traced around the OUTSIDE perimeter of the framelit onto the Whisper white paper to get the size that was just right for this piece. Before I matted the white under the art piece, I sponged Silver Encore ink around the edges. I also randomly sponged some Encore Silver ink onto the embossed stars. Hope that helps you recreate the card.

Have a Blessed Day!


  1. Very pretty! I love how you've cropped the stamped image into an oval shape. And I love the star background with this. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  2. I, too, love how you cropped the image to put the focus on the Holy Family. Wonderful! Glad you joined us this week at FMS!
