Holiday SAS#2, project 1

Hello All
Last Sunday was my second Holiday Stamp a Stack class of the Season.  Tonight  I want to show you the first of the five projects my gals made...they did four of each card design.
This first project made use of the fabulous new Circle Card Thinlit Die.  I love my Big Shot and this die is fast becoming another one of my favorites.

This die can cut a three part card but if you carefully place the paper in and over one end of the frame of the die, you can get a card like this one which consists of four separate parts.  The stamp set is the retired set, Come to Bethlehem.  Look at what you see when you pull open the card....

Did you notice that there is a gift card pocket inside this card(see where my name card is touching the card)?  The fourth segment of the die cut can be folded in to create the pocket......we used the hexagon punch to make a little "grab it" spot inside the card.  We sponge some so saffron ink from the star to the town.   I love the simple elegance of a religious card at Christmas.  Do you?
