Celebrate the Wonder

I don’t normally make many Christmas cards, and the ones I do make are usually last minute. This year is a little bit different: I’m not last minute! Although I haven’t made lots of cards, making even one is an improvement on my usual effort. This latest card involves a stamp by Crafty Impressions called Wise Men by Sue Dix, which to my eyes was just begging to be brightly coloured:

I stamped it in VersaColor Charcoal then embossed it with clear embossing powder to make the colouring easier. I used lots of different Promarker colours & finished off with gold & silver gel pens for some of the details.

I finished off with a Penny Black stamp (free with a magazine) embossed with Wow Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter. I’m going to make this my second entry for the Christmas challenge over at Less is More.
