Away in a Manger in Grey! Stamp Simply Ribbon Store card!

Good Monday Morning!  Can you believe this is Thanksgiving week?  I know, I can't believe it either! I have a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card to share with you today featuring products from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!  A while back I shared a couple Tina Wenke Stampavie Away in a Manger Cards HERE.  I made several for all our grandchildren this year, but this one is my favorite.  A study in Copic greys! LOVE the pink floppy blossom ribbon embellishment from Melissa Frances. I trimmed off two of the flowers from the strand, tied them with grey/white bakers string before stringing through a punched 3/4" circle.  This stabilizes and gives the flower a base which enables me to better adhere it to the card! 

Cool Greys, Warm Greys, Toner Greys make for a wonderful coloring of this image, no? The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then cut the image using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight.  The pink panel and grey card  base are cut using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A.  It is raised using 3D square foam dimensionals, double stacked for height!  

A peek at the card inside!  Using Memento Black ink, I stamped a JustRite Large Fancy Holiday Sentiment and cut it out using a Spellbinders A2 Fancy Weave Die.  Go take a look at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and pick a Stampavie image to get your cards started for the holidays!  There are so many great ones to choose from!  Praying you will have a wonderful Monday!  Take good care! 
HERE is the Stampavie image I used on today's card, Away in a Manger. Below I am sharing a couple more of my favorites!
Baby Jesus with Animals is another one of my favorites!  Isn't is precious?  
This Cardinal on Pine Branch would look spectacular for a holiday card. Or simply a winter card!  I cardinal winter cards in my future!  Hope you enjoy viewing a few of my favorite Stampavie images for the holidays this year!

Love the image, ooloring, dies. I would of never thought to use greys and pinks for a Christmas card but this is wonderful.
God bless,
