Wisemen Card

It was a long night but I finished the last of the cards around 1:00 a.m. and they are finally in the mail. Here's one of the cards that I mailed today.

I love the Wise men image on the Cricut Lite Inspired Heart cartridge. I wanted my Wise men to have a golden metallic look. I chose a golden bronze metallic paper and coordinated it with a deep violet blue card stock. The Wise men image was then matted on ivory glittered card stock.

Directions for Wise men Card:

Cricut Lite Inspired Heart Cartridge
Deep violet blue, and white card stock
Greeting Card Program

Recollections Metallic card stock-golden bronze
DCWV 'Tis the Season Ivory Glittered card stock

Gold Ribbon

1. Use the greeting card program to create a Christmas verse. Print it on white card stock using the horizontal half fold option.

2. Set the size dial on the Cricut to 3 inches and cut the Wise men out of golden bronze metallic paper. Next cut the background out of the deep violet blue card stock. Glue the Wise men to the background.

3. Cut a piece of ivory glittered card stock approximately 5 3/4 inches wide by 3 3/4 inches high. Glue the Wise men on top of the ivory card stock.

4. Cut a piece of deep violet blue card stock approximately 6 1/4 inches wide by 4 1/8 inches high and glue the Wise men image on top of the card stock.

5. Cut enough gold ribbon to tie a small bow. Glue the bow to the top left hand corner of the card.
