Wise Men from Afar

Here’s a quick and simple Christmas card that  I made for a swap. Hence I know it’s quick because I made 20 of them. Actually I made closer to 30 but I was having issues with my stamp set, Wise Men From Afar. It would not stamp consistently – I scrubbed any residue off the stamp, used versamark first, held the stamp down for longer and sometimes, I even used a blender pen if the issue was minor enough to fix that way. My replacement set should be here tomorrow!

For the sand I used so saffron some full strength, some stamped off once and then fresh fig for the wise men. It seems a very regal colour. The star is embossed in gold. I decided to have a wide so saffron border and a skinny fresh fig one. I prefer not to have the borders all the same width, it’s a bit too matchy matchy. Im looking forward to my set arriving soon – because it’s unavailable (and my current set is too frustrating to use), of course I have a bunch of ideas for it!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.
