We Three Kings...

I have a Christmas card to share today...featuring a Penny Black stamp called 'We Three Kings'. I heat embossed it on black card using 'Copper Kettle' embossing powder from Personal Impressions. I didn't have any copper card to mat it on to, so I used more of the embossing powder on white card...just inking around the edges using Versamark Ink and coating it with the powder...I did a couple of layers to get an even coat. I stamped the matching sentiment along the bottom of my card blank, then added the image panel above.

That stamp really makes an impact using the copper over black! Fantastic!

Stunning card! The copper embossing is so effective. I jumps forward from the dark background. This would look great on a dark navy blue too! Perfect sentiment here too.

Thanks for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.
