Louisiana carnival season has begun! January 6 is called Epiphany or Twelfth Night (since it’s twelve days after Christmas) or Kings Day (hence the King Cake tie-in?). It marks the moment in the Bible that the three kings arrived in Bethlehem to behold the baby Jesus. Traditionally, Epiphany is considered the last day of the Christmas holidays. You can now say “Happy Mardi Gras!”, wear purple, green and gold, buy and eat king cake and take down your Christmas decorations! I plan on doing it tomorrow…ugh!
In the meantime, I made a festive card to celebrate! I used the JFFRS Stamptangle Celestial Montage stamp image. This image kind of reminds me of some of my Mardi Gras decorations…
The image was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Ranger Ink Silver
Super Fine embossing powder. The image was painted with a mixture of Perfect Pearls True Gold and True Red pigment powder and water. The background paper is Club Scrap® cardstock and embellished with metallic dot stickers from the CS Color Me Happy embellishment pack .
I’m off to get motivated to take down Christmas and put out the Mardi Gras bling. Hmmmm, I might need a little king cake and coffee first!
Do more of what makes you happy!
