Gifts of the Magi


For some reason I didn't make many sacred cards this year.  Of course I made the ones for the church auction and shut-ins, but this is the only other one I made.  Not sure why.  I totally cased this card--you can see the original HERE.  It looks like such a simple card doesn't it?  I kept messing it up, but finally got a finished product I could live with. 


I made a frame out of copy paper, then sponged inside it on CS with Bashful Blue, stamped the main image, from SU's Come to Bethlehem, in Night of Navy.  I embossed the sentiment in silver and added the rhinestone brad.  Layered onto N of N and card base is brushed silver.  Main panel is misted with Champagne shimmer paint in alcohol--very sparkly IRL but you can't tell in the pic.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Peace be with you all.
