A Word from the Wise Men

For the letter 'W' in Beccy's Place 30 day of Christmas Cards, I've selected C. C. Designs, Tiny Wisemen.

I stamped the image and sentiment on Neenah 110# cardstock and used my Copic markers for coloring.  Then I carefully cut the image out and set it aside. 

For the background, I used the Momenta Starry Background plate die and the gold patterned paper.  Then I cut the solid gold cardstock to fit behind the die, allowing the gold stars to shine through.  Those two layers were secured to the A2 card front.  

I added a couple of thin foam squares on the back of the image, then secured the tiny wise men to the bottom edge of the patterned paper.  After die cutting the sentiment into a small fishtail banner shape, I added it to the top left corner of the card.  

Lastly I wrapped the red organza ribbon around at the fold, and knotted it at the top to complete my design.
