Star of Wonder
Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope all of you are having a safe and fun New Year’s Eve!
Tonight I am sharing another Christmas card designed with We Three Kings from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
I love the We Three Kings stamp set with the silhouette images and all the different sentiments- perfect for so many styles of cards. I needed a few additional Christmas cards and decided to pull out my Distress Oxide inks to create a fairly quick and easy card.
I enjoy participating with online challenges and am linking this card to the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Simon Says Wednesday site or the / yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Using Tim Holtz® Distress Oxide Inks, apply Tumbled Glass with a sponge dauber onto a piece of white cardstock. Add a bit of Faded Denim and Picked Raspberry until you are satisfied with the color. Lightly spritz with water and dry with a heat tool.
2). On another piece of white cardstock, de-static with an embossing powder tool, ink the wiseman image from We Three Kings with archival black ink, stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, die cut the image with a domed stitched die.
3). Using the same distress oxide inks as in step 1, apply ink to the sky area to mimic part of the background on the main panel.
4). De-static the left hand side of the panel with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment and star image from We Three Kings with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
5). Mount the die cut domed image with dimensional foam and add a rhinestone to the center of the star.
6). Add a few stars with a Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen to finish off the card.
