Christmas Church

Front of Card Highlights the Church
Inside Card

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Take Me to the Church is to make a Christmas Card with a church on it.  I have used an old PSX stamp Christmas Village for my design.  I stamped only a portion of the stamp on the inside of a White Card base to make the church the center of the design and colored the scene with markers, a white gel pen, and a Stardust pen.  On the front of the card I die cut a square window to expose only the church on the inside.  I framed that with a open square cut from Sage Green CS.  I stamped a Spellbinders Sentiment with SU Always Artichoke ink.  I also added a strip of the Green CS heat embossed with Silver EP with another Spellbinders Sentiment to finish the inside.  (Looks better IRL). The strip extends beneath the front of the card when closed.
 I have made many cards with this PSX stamp and each one has been a different design.
