#566 – Bethlehem Edgelits Dies – December 18, 2018

Is this card not stunning?  One of my friends received a similar swap card at OnStage and this was our twist on it.  It uses the “Bethlehem Edgelits Dies” (pg. 215 – Annual Catalog).  It also coordinates with the “Night in Bethlehem” stamp set (pg. 99 – Annual Catalog).

The top card also uses the Vellum Cardstock (pg. 192 – Annual Catalog).

It was embossed with the “Softly Falling” embossing folder!  Love the look on vellum!

The clearance rack has added a lot of new items.  Some have been discounted up to 60%.  All items are while supplies last and some have already sold out!
