Holy Triptych Wisemen


Yes...I'm hooked on this set! Actually, I had a bunch of stamped images left over from when I was doing trial and error for my Control Freaks swap. The only image I've inked up is the Three Wise Men! I need to work with the other beautiful images in that set, too!

This is very elegant looking to me..River Rock, Always Artichoke and Vanilla combo with Gold embossing The background of the Wisemen is actually River Rock ink direct to paper application to vanilla cardstock! I used a sponge dauber in a kind of stripe effect. The shade variations are really pretty! I then used my Coluzzle to cut the ovals. Part of the backgrond is the Holiday Harmony Double Sided paper in the new Holiday Mini. A touch of Vanilla Taffeta and River Rock double stitched ribbon adds to the elegance!

Sets: Holy Triptych
C/S: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, River Rock, Holiday Harmony DS paper
Inks: Versmark
Other: Gold EP, Vanilla Taffeta, River Rock double stitch ribbon, Coluzzle

I love this, Connie! I am definitely using this set for my Christmas cards and I love to see your versions. I didn't think I liked River Rock when I first saw it and now I've gone through two packs. It just goes with everything!

I love how the vanilla swip actaully gave it a more distressed look. Great, elegant card, Connie!

Love this card Connie! I absolutely love the swiped background behind the wise men. It looks so elegant.

Your card inspired me to make a similar one for my recent WCMD class.
