Good morning! Today, I have a Christmas card to share with you using Spellbinders™ die templates and a NEW stamp set from Crafty Secrets, Angel Blessings. The Angel Blessings stamp set is Beautiful and is full of images of Angels and sentiments.The Angel image on my card is one of my favorite images from the stamp set. To begin I stamped the image with Rich Cocoa ink on to Simply Smooth White Cardstock from DCS. Then I started adding color using Copic Markers.For the second step I added color to the birds and the leaves.Lastly I colored the hair and horn. I used the Grand Calibur™ from Spellbinders™ and S5-025 Labels Seventeen die #3 to create the diecut. Then I airbrushed using a Copic marker and inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.Using a Clear Star Glitter Pen I added glitter to the wings and hair of the angel.For the sentiment I stamped the word Believe and then used S4-235 Fancy Tags to create the diecut. I airbrushed with a Copic marker and inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I added 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to add a little dimension to the tag and added a couple rhinestones.To create the large snowflake I used S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants. The bottom snowflake is cardstock with Antique Silver Glitter added and the top snowflake is white sheer material. I layered the two large snowflakes and added a smaller one to the center. I also added crinkle seam binding and a decorative button with a pearl. In this close up photo you can see the sheer material.
