Manger scene

     Today I am sharing the adorable Nativity Mini TryFold from Art Impressions.  

Nativity MTF

     I decided to try a bit of a different way to use the stamp set instead of the tri-fold design.  For my card I used three pieces of watercolor paper.  The first two were scored on the left, adhered together along the left side and then the pair were adhered to the last piece that baby Jesus was stamped on.  I then tied some hemp cord around the score line.  The card stands up slightly fanned so you can see all the layers.
     My coloring was done in watercolor style with several different products.

     You can find this wonderful set in the AI store or your favorite online retailer like Simon Says Stamp or Ellen Hutson.
Be blessed!
