Baby Jesus

Happy Monday Stampers,
I have been working on my daughter's cards and gifts for her teachers.  I decided on using this "Oldie by Goodie" from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I absolutely adore this image of baby Jesus with the lamb...It's a retired image, but that is one of the great things about Margaret at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Even though it's a retired image, she will make it special for you if you ask!  She's a real sweetie, so if you want this stamp just email and let her know that you want Baby Jesus and we will get it right out to you:)
So I stamped the image on Neenah Classic White cardstock with Memento Black and colored with my Copics.  I'm still working on shading, but learning as I go.  I then painted on Brushable Glue on the lamb and covered him with Snow White flocking.  I then layered it on Kraft cardstock and layered it on the cardfront with dimensional tape.  For the patterned paper pieces I cut up a lot of brown and blue scraps into 1" and 2" squares.  The button is tied over some raffia with hemp.  The Rejoice is from the Ornament Nesties stamp set and stamped in Black also.
For the envelope I used an old SU wheel.
Then for the gift I bought some of the Bath and Body works hand sanitizer and put it in a cello back and topped it with the Kraft cardstock cut out with the Top Note Sizzix die and wheeled it.  Then punched out a star and tied a jingle bell with silver cord around a big piece of wire ribbon that I had laying around.
Well, that's about it...thanks for stopping by:)
Happy Stamping,
