Quick and easy Three Kings Day

 Three Kings Day 

By Marion Davis, Artistic Guide

Finished card size: 4.25" x 6”

Truly a quick and easy card  ...This was made for a friend who celebrates Three Kings Day, January 6, as the big day for presents.

(Editor's Note:  For centuries church calendars in the East and the West have agreed that there are twelve days of Christmas and they begin on Christmas Day and end on January 6.  The twelve days of Christmas end with the Feast of Epiphany also called "The Adoration of the Magi" or "The Manifestation of God." Celebrated on January 6, it is known as the day of the Three Kings (or wise men/magi): Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar. According to the Christian Bible,  these three kings saw, on the night when Christ was born, a bright star, followed it to Bethlehem and found there the Christ child and presented Him with gold, frankincense and myrrh. )

Supplies:
Stamps:
Digital Stamp (Justolie)
Paper:
Olive foil icicle paper from artist’s stash (Club Scrap)
Ivory card stock for sentiment (Neena)       
Other:
Gold gel pen (Sakura)
3 Crown charms from artist’s stash I believe from Fancifuls
1.5” circle punch (McGill)
Dimensional glue dots
Paper Trimmer        

Directions:

  1. Insert> picture> from file to get the digital file into Word.
  2.  Right click on the image and then click text wrap and click square. If you can’t find text wrap click on the picture (these instructions are for Office 2010) and that will bring up the picture tools ribbon. Look on format in the arrange section and you will find text wrap. Click “text wrap” and then “square” as above. This frees the image so you can move it anywhere.
  3. Be sure you can see the “handles on the image. If not just click on the image. Now resize the image to the size you want the circle. I used. A little under 1.5” so I could punch it with a 1.5” circle punch.
  4. Punch out the circle.
  5. Use the glue dots to apply the circle and the 3 crown charms.
  6. I put a personal note on the inside and it is done.

I told you it was quick and easy.
