Oh star of wonder, star of night, star with royal beauty bright. You can almost hear the deep voices of Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar singing as they follow the Star of Bethlehem, bearing gifts, to give homage to the new born King. The star leads the Wise Men to the manger where they find Mary, Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. Mary is kneeling at Jesus’ side while Joseph, ever the protector, watches over them. Surrounded by sheep, the true Lamb of God sleeps peacefully as angels herald the Good News. This beautiful scene shares the wonder of Christmas with all who see it.
This religious Christmas card, design #368CX, appropriately titled Golden Magi Peaceful Christmas Card and exquisitely designed by John T. Lewis, is a golden vision of the Magi’s visit to the Holy Family. A small, but classic nativity scene embossed with gold foil – not glitzy gold, but royal gold, befitting a King – and made of heavy buff colored paper stock. A gold border regally frames the image and highlights the star above the manger. The midnight blue sky, dotted with stars, helps to make the gold pop off the page. The words “Peace on Earth,” in beautiful script remind us of the meaning of this first Christmas.
