And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Telescoping Nativity

Hello friends...I trust everyone has had a wonderful week!  Thanks to everyone who hopped along with us on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps birthday celebration blog hop.  Don't forget to check the SNSS Blog to see if you've won one of the fabulous prize packs...4 winners will be announced today!  And now...since it is Saturday, it's time for The Sweet Stop sketch challenge!

Creative Nugget:  I apologize for the quality of the photo...the lighting was not very good when I took this picture.  A few weeks ago Holly, AKA Toy, over at SCS challenged us to make a telescoping card, and there were so many beautiful samples, I thought I'd give it a try.  The nativity image was stamped four times on  Select White card stock and cut with different sizes of square Nestabilities.  The square panels were matted on slightly larger layers of Enchanted Evening card stock.  Each panel was popped up on top of each other, telescoping out from the front of the card. 

Here is another view so you can see the telescoping technique a little better.  The base of the card is Enchanted Evening with a white panel embossed with the square lattice EF.  The side panel was given some texture with the canvas impression plate and mounted on Enchanted Evening with an eyelet border.  I couldn't resist adding this new Lacey Eyelet Border Die from SNSS...isn't it lovely!  Some crinkle ribbon was dyed to match the card and woven through the border. Sparkly rhinestones were added to complete the card.  This technique was fun and easy...hope you'll give it a try!  

The other Sugar Babies have outdone themselves with this sketch.  Take some time to check out what they have done...then use the sketch to create a card of your own.  Use the linky tool at The Sweet Stop to upload your creation.  One lucky participant will win a $10 gift certificate from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!
