Here are the cards, finally. One of my lovely daughters had taken my camera with her to a sleepover without asking & so couldn't upload, I also spent a fair bit of time hunting for it which wasn't ideal but have it now.
The "3 Wise Men" has the image embossed in black then a masking technique to create the moon whilst brayering the background. Then it is just layered with the saying.
The "Mary & Joseph" is stamped and then coloured using Stampin Up stampin write markers with the blender pen giving an almost water colour effect. The card is then layered with a Stampin Up punched edge.
