May Christmas Cards

I know that you are probably sick of my Christmas cards but I'm so proud of myself for being ahead of the game, I have to show off! These are my May cards for the group at Stampin' Addicts that are working on Christmas or Hanakah cards all year long! For this set of cards I used Stampin' Up! Come to Bethlehem. Here's the group picture of the 16 cards.

Here's a close up of one card.

Stamps: Come to Bethlehem
Ink: Whisper White
Cardstock: Concord Crush, Whisper White
Accessories: White embossing powder, Square lattice embossing folder,
 White grosgrain ribbon, rhinestone, dimensional

I like these because they are not your traditional colors for Christmas. The church I attend is name Epiphany and this stamp set reminds me of Epiphany, January 6, the day that the wisemen found the Christ child in Bethlehem. The Gentile Christmas!

Happy Stampin'!
