Christmas Angels

I've been meaning to make a Christmas card every week this year. So far, I've made 3! Ooh boy, I have some catching up to do. The challenge at Merry Monday is very helpful for inspiration. This week they're asking you to create a card with angels on it. I'm using the tic-tac-toe color board from Color My Heart. I've chosen the left Column - Sapphire, White Daisy, and Bashful. The sketch is from Sunday Stamps.

I stamped the angels onto White Daisy cardstock with Baby Pink ink (I don't have Bashful yet). Then I stamped Gloria in Baby Pink onto my oval, and stamped the verse under it in Sapphire. I used velum for the banner panel to keep the look soft. I matted the oval in White Daisy instead of Sapphire for that monochromatic look. I used a touch of Canary in second generation stamping for the star, and a touch of Smoothie in the baker's twine

I hope you'll come join me in these challenges this week. The tic-tac-toe is so fun!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Sapphire
Stamps: Angelic Blessings, Everlasting Life, Glory to God
Ink: Sapphire, Baby Pink
Other: Paradise Baker's Twine, Vellum (not CTMH)

  3. So soft and lovely - what an elegant Christmas card! Love those layered ovals for the sentiment! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

  4. Beautiful card, Sarah! You’ve inspired me to think outside the box more often when looking at the color challenge. The colors you used for this card are so soft and pretty. Perfect for Christmas! Thank you for sharing with us at Color My Heart Color Dare!

  5. Beautiful card, and such soft colors. Probably one of the combination of colors I hesitated on because sapphire was such a contrast. But you tackled it and your card is stunning, and the sapphire used on the sentiment cries out a lovely message for a Christmas card. Beautifully done. Thanks for sharing with Color Dare.

  6. Very pretty card happy to see you stamping again! Thanks for playing with the Color My Heart Color Dare.
