Last Christmas Card of 2023

 I was determined to use all my Clarity Club stencils before the end of the year and used the December offering to make may last Christmas card of 2023.

Attach the stencil (#115) to a piece of Clarity stencil card with a piece of low tack tape to create a hinge.

Add a piece of copy paper in between, draw round the faces and halos and cut them out with a craft knife to create masks.

Blend Tattered Rose Distress ink through the face apertures and Sun Dazed Archival ink through the halos.

Mask off the halos and faces and around the Madonna and blend Morning Glory Archival ink through the apertures of the Madonna's robes.

Blend French Ultramarine Archival ink through the apertures for Baby Jesus' robes.

Mask off as needed and add Night Sky Archival ink through the remaining apertures.

Die cut the topper using the 5.5" nested square die and a mat from dark blue glitter card using the corresponding picot die.

Add the large star from the winter Cabins Refelections set to the background in Versamark ink and heat emboss in gold.

Add one of the Christmas Clarity Quotes (set 4) in Night Sky archival ink.

To finish, mat up the topper and add it to the front of a 7" x 7" white card blank.
