We Three Kings

Picked this little image up cheap from a market stall. Now I know why it was so cheap and I shouldn't have fallen for it - it took me several goes to get a decent image - each time there was a different part missing! However, I persevered and eventually made a couple of similar cards.
I  am trying to get motivated to make a bunch of Christmas cards but my mojo seems to have taken a hike since returning from our holiday in France LOL!
I cut a silver glitter card frame to mount around the image using  a couple of octagon dies. The black embossed image was sponged with Memento Summer sky and Paris Dusk as was the label for the sentiment. These were mounted on textured white card.
A very quick card for making batches of Christmas cards using different embossed images. I won't be using this particular one again. haha!

  6. Hi Kathy- lovely Christmas card, love your choice of colour. I have had an idea or two for this years, but absolutely refuse to start making Christmas cards before I've been on holiday, lol. I'm in the UK too- the Baby Wash came from reading too many American recipes! It is indeed what we would call Baby Bath.
    Hugs, Shaz xx
