For today’s card share I’m using the beautiful Wonder of Christmas Stamp Set. I love this set because I just think the angel is so sweet and I loved the different sentiments it came with.
For the card description, I’m going to work my way backwards because honestly, that’s how the card developed.
I started with my angel. She was stamped in Stazon Black (permanent ink, which allows for water coloring). I then used the aqua painters and Marina Mist for her dress and shoes, Garden Green for the banner, Daffodil Delight for her wings, and Crumb Cake for her hair and body. Next I fussy cut her out.
I wanted her to really pop, so I cut out a Daffodil Delight scalloped circle and stamped it with the star (included in the Wonder of Christmas Stamp Set) in Daffodil Delight and adhere the angel to it.
Next, I layered a pattern from the This Christmas DSP over some Whisper White and tied a Gold Baker’s Twine Bow around it from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack.
Last but not least, I used Garden Green as my background and heat embossed in gold the sentient “The Lord is Come” and then stamped in Garden Green some more stars all around.
Today’s card inspiration came from this week’s sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.
