Magical Monday: Baby Jesus (Faithbook Series #5)


My Faithbook post for this month is also a Magical Monday card….just some lovely coloring and holiday music to get you into the true spirit of Christmas!

Baby Jesus

I had special long envelopes in my stash, and wanted to create a scene on a card custom-made for the envelopes with this Wplus9 Drummer Boy stamp set – they seemed to be a match made in heaven! I stamped all the images in hybrid ink, and started in with my Inktense pencils and a brush…one of the great things about Inktense is that it dries permanent – so as long as you strategically let areas dry while you paint others, you can keep the color bleeding to a minimum!

I’m not certain what I’d call this card fold; the paper is 3-1/4″ by 11″, and the folds are at 5 and 8 inches. You can adapt this to whatever your envelope size is; I wanted this to fit into a long thin envelope I had in my stash.Sandy Allnock Faithbook 5 card fold

The barn wall came out so well – with simple strokes of different colors! I started off with dark ones on the left, and gradually got lighter and thinner toward the light source – the King Himself!
