The FIRST Christmas!
When I first saw this stamp set in the Holiday Catalog I thought of "Away in the Manger".  The set only has 4 pieces but I absolutely love it. It's meaningful and simple.  If you'd like to recreate this card, here are a few tips. 1) I stamped the image of baby Jesus and the start FIRST, then punched them out. I tried it the other way, punching first then stamping, but it never fit right. I typically always stamp first, then punch.  2) The edges of the circle and the words are sponged in Summer Starfruit ink.
