Good morning! I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday weekend, your fill of yummy foods, spending time with family and friends and maybe a little shopping thrown in along the way. We have had a really nice and relaxing weekend.
For today I have a Christmas card to share with you. I love these soft aqua colors and I was really happy with how the card turned out. The stamped images are from Just for Fun Rubber Stamps. I started with stamping the image of the Angel in Flight G2504 and then coloring with Copics. Once I had the coloring done then I cut out the image. Then I added glitter to the hair and dress of the angel. The next piece I worked on was the sheet music. I stamped the image of the sheet music Glorious Song H2503 and then used distress inks Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Broken China (Blue), Milled Lavender on my craft mat along with some water to create the color in the background. Then I distressed the edges.After I had the two stamped images done I set them aside and worked on the snowflake background and the snowflake frame. To achieve the look of the snowflake background I took a piece of white cardstock and ran it through the Wizard™ with the Snowflake Impressabilites I2-1003 from Spellbinders™ and then I used the side with the embossed snowflakes and added ink to get the snowflakes to pop and distressing on the edges. For the frame I used a piece of light aqua colored craft paper from 3M. The paper is Post-it Craft Paper and it is available in 20 different colors all with a white core (with the exception of the black). The other things I really like about the craft paper is that it has an adhesive backing which makes it perfect for using in the Wizard™ and die cutting! I used the Snowflake Frame S5-017 die template from Spellbinders™ and sanded over the embossed areas to reveal the white core. I also made a little Christmas bouquet for the angel using the Martha Stewart twig punch, Ivory Flower Soft and tiny rhinestones. I assembled the card as shown and then I also added some ivory lace and pom-pom trim at the bottom of the card. To finish off the card I created a snowflake embellishment using the Create a Flake Two S4-223 die template from Spellbinders™ and a snowflake brad. I also added coarse crystal glitter around the edges.
