Wise Gifts

All this week, the Design Team at Stampendous has been sharing cards created to show the “Reason for the Season.”  My card today uses Wise Gifts depicting the three Kings or Wise Men, which ever you prefer to call them.  I always found it fitting that those men chose to seek Him and honor Him with gifts befitting a King.  Such a beautiful celebration of one so tiny!

Here’s what I used to create this card:

P272 Wise Gifts

Chameleon™ Markers (NU3, CG8, BR2, YO3, OL3, BV4, BL3, PR4, RD4, VO4, BL6)
Delicata™ Golden Glitz Pigment Ink Pad by Tsukineko®
atyouSpica™ Glitter Pen in Sand by Too Marker Products®
atyouSpica™ Glitter Pen in Gold by Too Marker Products®
Olive Green Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Purples Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
ZipDry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives™

Here’s what I did to create this card:

1. Stamp image and color, add glitter pen ink to crowns and vessels.
2. Edge trimmed image in gold ink.
3. Trim green cardstock for mat and edge in gold ink.
4. Create an A2 card base in a tent fold from purple cardstock.
5. Using the stamp that mimics peeled paint, stamp gold ink on front of card base, allow a few minutes for ink to dry as this new ink will air dry within minutes.
6. Adhere all layers.

Here’s a list of my teammates that are also posting today, it would be awesome if you left them some love for their efforts:

Thanks so very much for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve found some inspiration along the way for creating your own Christmas cards.  I’ll see you next week with more projects to share.  Have a wonderful weekend!  Merry Christmas!
