Silent Night, Holy night

Small stamps are not only for small cards.  Here I used some on a 7" x 7" card, tying them together with stencilling and die cuts.

Die cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the 3” nested circle die and a mat from black card using the corresponding picot die.
Add the topper to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank using temporary double sided tape.
Lay Sam’s spiral A5 frameless stencil over the top and blend Broken China distress ink through it with a Clarity stencil brush.
Replace that stencil with the Christmas Stars shape and blend Lost Shadow Distress ink through parts of it.
Add the star from the Oh Little Town of Bethlehem Christmas Compendium stamp set by Linda Williams in Black Soot Distress Archival ink. Colour it in using a black Posca pen.
Add the stable and palm trees from the same set in a like manner and colour in.
Add some lines below the trees with the same pen.
Remove the topper. Mat up the topper and add it back to the card lining up the stencilling.
Add Silent Night Holy Night from a second stamp set to the main card in the same ink as before.
To finish, add the three small silhouette wise men from the same set in the same ink.
