I have a sweet little card for you today.  I didn’t originally purchase this Wonder of Christmas set, but used my girlfriend’s when she was stamping at my house.  Then, decided I loved the greetings and the angel so much that I needed a set for myself.  Here’s the first card I did using it paired with the Warmth & Cheer Designer Paper.





Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Soft Sky cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
  • A 4 x 3-3/4 piece of Warmth & Cheer DSP was added to the top of a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  • A 1/4 x 4 strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper hides the seam.
  • The greeting from Wonder of Christmas was stamped with Memento Black Ink in the lower left corner.
  • The angel was stamped with  Memento Black Ink, then carefully watercolored with Delightful Dijon, Soft Suede, Blushing Bride,, Old Olive and Soft Sky Markers with an AquaPainter (be careful, the black will bleed if it gets too wet).
  • The wings were covered with Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer!
  • The angel was cut out and placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!


Isn’t she so sweet!  Just love that little face!  And this is a nice, flat card for mailing!
