Angel Trio

Christmas is only a couple weeks away - YIKES!! I have a couple standing orders for Christmas cards every year. My mom always asks me to make a card for one of her dear, dear lifelong friends. 

Her friend loves angels so when I saw the Angel Trio  stamp, I knew it would be perfect for this year's card - I hope! 

This is a more simple layout then I usually do, but my mom's friend likes things neat and simple. It was a challenge for me but I love to push the boundaries of creativity sometimes - for me anyway. 

I stamped my image and coloured it with alcohol markers, and added  some gold Stickles to each of the angel gowns. It is hard to see in the picture but their wings all have some Clear Wink of Stella on them as well. 

Then I gave myself another challenge - to use scraps of paper, you know those little pieces you have left over from making cards - not big enough to use for anything major but "could be used" for something? I grabbed some of my little bits from the Mistletoe Collection by Bo Bunny and used my fishtail banner dies to make the little ribbon pieces to add under the image. 

After cutting a piece of white cardstock, I ran it through my Big Kick with an embossing folder to add some texture to the background. I pre tested my sentiment stamp before I stamped it since the background is raised, found a way to make it work and voila! My card is finished off with some gold glitter gumdrops.
