Flourishes Day 4 New Release-The First Noel

Welcome to Day 4 of Flourishes New Release.  Today we are showing you this beautiful new silhouette stamp called The First Noel.  This set will long be my go to set for Christmas stamping.  I just love the image and that it portrays the real reason for this season.



I stamped my image  out onto Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.  Then I embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I added just a small touch of chalk to the sky and the manger area to give it some highlight.  I used my Spellbinders Label 23 for my card shape.  I added some black rhinestones and stamped out my sentiment.  I added a Crystal Sparklet for just a little bit of bling.  A pretty simple card.
