Nativity scene with Elena

Hi there!

Elena here, with a card combining 2 of the sets from our latest release: Nativity Play and Angel Wings.

Nativity scene (Neat and Tangled)

I am so happy to have a nativity set for my Christmas cards this year! I stamped out Mary and Joseph and colored them with copic markers. I created stripes in Mary's tunic with a darker red marker, and gave Joseph a darker skin color. I just love the way Mary is looking down at baby Jesus!

The angel has come to give them good news! I know the angels come to tell the shepherds, but still. Maybe I'll create another card with a few shepherds and sheep! Joseph could definitely stand in for a shepherd and the sheep in Nativity Play kills me, he's so cute.

I set the images against a patterned paper of night sky, and the sentiment was heat-embossed onto a kraft-colored hill. With a W1 copic marker, I added some shading below the images. I love how this adds dimension and grounds Mary and Joseph.

I hope you like it! If you create anything with any of these new sets, we'd love to see! Be sure to tag us #neatandtangled on instagram!



  1. Hi Elena, What a sweet card! Your coloring is amazing and I love your background. This set would be so cute for kids to play with! One could die cut a matching shape to glue on the back of each image, or if the dies cut through felt it would be so fun to back the images with that so kids could make little scenes on another big piece of felt! This is such an adorable set and keeps the reason for Christmas in focus!

  2. Beautiful scene on this fab card.
