Merry Christmas Recessed Panel Card

Greetings!  Today I have a Christmas card for you.  It features a recessed panel and starry sky to accommodate Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus.  The inspiration for the recessed panel came from Handcrafted by Helen on YouTube.  Links to the products I used are below.  Hope you like it :0)

I used a text background stamp by Stampendous with gift tissue paper to create the background, which is also the recessed panel (because it’s behind the blue panels that create the frame).  A little Golden matte medium to adhere the tissue paper to some tan cardstock, and then some Ranger Archival ink to stamp the image and I was ready to color it with Faber-Castel PITT artist brush pens (really more like markers).  The Hero Arts sentiment was heat embossed with Wow embossing powder.  I used some peel off stickers from the Paper Studio to line the edge of the blue starry sky panels.  The star is also a peel off sticker that I put on some cardstock and then colored it in with a Uniball Signo silver gel pen, which I also used to add some light rays coming from the star and to color Mary and Joseph’s headbands.  Happy early Merry Christmas!  Enjoy the YouTube video below.
