Wise Men Die Cut Christmas Card


For my final card in The Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas challenge, I was inspired by Linda's brilliant use of white and green.  I went a little overboard with the white, I suppose...  I picked up this Crafter's Companion wise men die cut for a song recently and really wanted to use it somehow.


I pieced together a tiny scrap of handmade paper to cover the cutouts.  The panel was lightly rubbed with Vintage Photo.  


I just love the new Tidings dies by Tim Holtz and thought this was the perfect card to incorporate one of the words.  I stamped faux stitching to frame all that white and gave her a good old splatter because I can't live without grunging stuff up!  I embossed the star and mounted it up for extra dimension.  A special thank you to Linda for hostessing this challenge and to The Funkie Junkie Boutique, the best ever sponsor!

What a super die and you have created such a wonderful scene on your card with it too. I love grungy but always find it difficult to create my own. This is beautiful and I want to thank you for entering it in our challenge at 613 Avenue Create this month.

Oh my, this is drop dead gorgeous, Autumn! That die is really a WOW! and how beautiful it looks with all that white and gold. The greens peeking out from within make a lovely contrast. And I definitely agree that the Vintage Tidings die set is a classic to be used year after year! I am so delighted that you were able to finish the challenge this year. I ope you have enjoyed it and will be back to play with me again next year. Best of luck in the prize drawings tomorrow!
