Three Wise Men Scripture Verse Card - 52 {C}CT Nov Theme Challenge

It's theme week at 52 {C}CT and we want to see a scripture verse on your Christmas cards this time.


I chose to use a digital silhouette image of the three wise men making their way to the stable.  The digi had text added but I cut out just the image portion.  I then typed and printed an appropriate verse from Matthew to go with the image.  I trimmed the image and verse panels to the same width and layered them both onto a black mat.  I added some sparkle with a popped up silver star and a scalloped border.


Here's the inside and the envelope.  I've added a stamped sentiment and some more starry sparkle.


I hope you will join in our challenge this week, I look forward to seeing what you create!  Don't forget to check out what the other DT members have made to inspire you!

I chose that image too but yours is so much better = love all the sparkly stars and the scalloped border AND that you always decorate the inside of your cards - you put me to shame - Jacqueline xx
