O, Holy Night

This card takes patience and time to make. The paper piercing and fussy cutting the wise men take quite a bit of time. Sometimes, though this is the part that calms us and helps us de-stress. I kept the glass window vellum clear so the focus remained on the wise men and the star. What do you think?

First I readied all of my pieces. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the wise men. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to them. I used dimensionals to attach them to the card.

The star was stamped and colored with Stampin' Blends. I think I used Bumblebee. I added Gold Wink of Stella and attached it with dimensionals. I used a Clear Faceted Gem in the middle.

The sentiment was also stamped and added with dimensionals. 

The window was die cut and added onto a Whisper White panel. I added a 2-1/4" square of vellum in the window opening. I then paper pierced all around the window. This panel was then adhered to the Cherry Cobbler panel.

The 5-1/4 x 4" panel of vellum was adhered to the Old Olive card base. The Cherry Cobbler panel was then added onto it.

Lastly, I added the 5-1/4 x 4" Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.
