King of Kings



One more Christmas card done thanks to the current "royal" challenge at CASology.  I'm also entering A Blog Named Hero's CAS challenge.  This DeNami manger is one of my oldest stamps & I still love to try & find new ways to use it.  It fit perfectly in Spellbinders Labels 18 stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz onto PTI Vintage Cream cardstock.  Since I stamped before die-cutting, I clear embossed the image to be sure it didn't smear.  I sponged the gold onto the next size die cut while it was still in the die.  This is my first time to print directly onto my card front after a couple tries on scratch paper.  Could have moved it over for a little bigger card, but this works.  No glitter, gems or pearls--for once I like it plain.  The twill is also PTI.  Hopefully I'll stop humming The Hallelujah Chorus sometime before December!  Enjoy your Sunday & thanks for stopping at my blog.
