Christmas Carols.

Time once again for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our latest makes. The theme was set by Christine and she has asked for cards based on a 'Christmas Carol'.
A quick rootle around in my used christmas card box and I found this card front  with a Crown on it and a bit of music score and text included in the design.  A light bulb moment went off and I made this acetate fronted card. I found the Magi sticker in my stash along with a few more gold stars so adhered these to the acetate. Added a few gold sticker edges and called my card done.
Card is based on the Carol 'We Three Kings'

 Card closed up and below shows the acetate with the  3 Kings sticker  attached.
 
Whilst sorting through my sticker stash I found another one with the Shepherds and sheep on and also one of an angel. Second light bulb moment. (I will be lighting up the Blackpool Tower at this rate).
I made another acetate fronted card.
Card is based on the Carol While Shepherds watch'd their flocks by Night.
I went on line and found the words which I uploaded in word and printed off. This was attached to green card stock for the base and then the Angel sticker and stars added. The acetate front was simply decorated with some more gold edging strips and the Shepherd sticker.

  Card closed up and below shows the acetate with the  shepherds sticker  attached.

Entering into the following challenges:
