I combined Peace on Earth from the Carols of Christmas stamp set and Bethlehem Edgelit Dies to create my favorite Christmas Card so far this year! I absolutely love this card! I want to try several variations of the Night of Bethlehem stamp set and the Edgelit Dies with the sentiment.
I used Gold Foil Sheets to create the Bethlehem background and the Christmas Star. There are many beautiful sentiments in the Night of Bethlehem stamp set but I think it is perfect with “Peace on Earth”. This is certainly a message that I pray for and a sentiment we all need to share more.
I can vision this combination of stamp and Edgelit dies used with so many of our pretty cardstock colors but I love Tranquil Tide as the background and for the figures of Joseph and Mary traveling to Bethlehem.
O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.
– Rector Phillips Brooks (1835-1903) wrote these words in 1868 after a trip to the Holy Land. He was inspired by the view of Bethlehem from the hills of Palestine.
