Holly Jolly Christmas Angel

Hi everyone,


I am so excited to be part of the Design Team at Holly Jolly Christmas, a weekly Christmas Challenge that is kicking off today! 


I don’t know about you but I always leave the creation of my Christmas cards until the very last minute.   So now I get to combine my love of crafting and build up a supply of Christmas cards in advance - what bonus!


I have create my card with the colours from the colour challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas – Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Early Espresso and I have added Whisper White as my neutral cardstock.


I have used Always Artichoke for the base of my card and embossed a piece of Early Espresso card stock in the big shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.


The image is a Bugaboo Image called Christmas Words Angel and I have printed the image on Whisper White Cardstock and Cherry Cobbler.  I cut out the Angel’s dress from the Cherry Cobbler image and layered it with dimensionals on top of the Whisper White image.


I have used the Color Spritzer Tool to add some Cherry Cobbler ink to the Angel word and some Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke ink to the Always Artichoke card.


I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler card to the Always Artichoke base card and attached the Whisper White Organza Ribbon to one end.  Now have I mentioned that I love this ribbon!


I punched out scallop edge boarder with some scrap Whisper White card stock and attached it to the embossed Early Espresso card stock.  This piece of cardstock was then added to the card front on top of the Cherry Cobbler strip.


I created a bow in the ribbon and stuck it down on the Early Espresso piece of card with a dimensional.


The angel word was added last with dimensionals.  I did not have star punch but my daughter did :)    and she was very was happy to share it with me.


The stars have been added to the card with dimensionals and they have a touch of ‘bling’!  The little star in the left hand corner is my interpretation of a shooting star :)


Here is my card:
