Good morning my lovelies, have you made a start on those Christmas cards yet? Its August already so before we know it Christmas will be upon us. Never fear though if you haven't even thought about making a start as Chocolate Baroque have some absolutely fabulous new Christmas stamps to tempt you. You can see them all here
As its been so hot, I went for a cool blue colour palette for this card which uses the Snowflake Shadow Big bold background stamp and one of the beautiful angels from Gothic Angels
I created the background by applying shades of blue distress inks to Southfield pearlescent card, I really love the delicate sparkle of this cardstock for Christmas projects. I stamped the Snowflake Shadow with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder before matting on some dark blue card.
I stamped the angel on some smooth white card with versamark and again embossed with white sparkly embossing powder, die cut with a bauble die and applied distress inks around the edge. I stamped the angel again in Memento tuxedo black and coloured her with Graph'It markers, cut her out and popped her up on the bauble with silicone glue. I really love this angel, she's been a big hit with al the DT, we've nicknamed her the 'Feisty Angel' lol.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
