We Three Kings

It's another Merry Monday on Friday here.  Lesley gave us another fantastic sketch


I was so inspired by my friend Colleen's beautiful neutral card.  Colleen is the Featured Designer this month.  My card doesn't have the elegance of Colleen's but I used one more thing from my UFO box.  That always makes me happy.


The card base is Very Vanilla.  It looks white in this picture.  The Brushed Gold looks best with the Vanilla I think.  

The three kings are stamped with Encore Gold and heat embossed.  After cutting the design piece with the Ovals die, I used the VersaMarker around the edges and embossed that with gold too.  (I didn't do a very neat job with the Versamarker but it will have to do.) I added some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to give it a bit of color.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Holy Triptych (retired), Come to Bethlehem (soon to be retired)
Ink:  Encore Gold, VersaMarker
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold
Other:  Scallop Trim Border and Modern Label Punches, Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Ovals Die, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details

This will be my last Friday post for Merry Monday as Lesley has invited me to be on the design team for this challenge.  I am so excited to be a part of this design team and love seeing my box of Christmas cards filling up.  Won't you join us?

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy!

I wish I could create CAS cards like this, but I always tend to add more layers, etc. I love all the gold touches!
