Night in Bethlehem Christmas Decoration

Today I am participating in the Global Stampin' Friends Blog Hop and it's all about Anything but Cards, which is perfect as I have been creating some simple decorations using the Night in Bethlehem stamp set from Stampin' Up! I was inspired to make this decoration to match a CARD I made a few weeks ago using the same set.

To make this card I started by choosing 3 circle sizes from the Layering Circle Framelits set and dies cutting the 2 circles from Whisper White card stock in the Big Shot, I also die cut the coordinating scallop dies with Fresh Fig card stock. Using Fresh Fig ink I stamped the Shepherd and Mary and Joseph stamp into the 2 smallest circles adding the Star stamped off to them. I grounded both these images using the lightest shade of Smokey Slate Stampin' Blends alcohol marker softening it with the Color Lifter. For the largest Whisper White circle I stamped the buildings in stamped off Fresh Fig ink and added the sentiment which I stamped in the same ink on Vellum and also cut using the Layering Circle Framelits. I adhered the stamped circles to the scalloped circles and attached Fresh Fig Finely Woven and Gold 1/8 Ribbons together to the back of the circles sandwiching them with another Fresh Fig card stock circle to complete the project.
