Angels We Have Heard on High...

Happy hump day everyone! Knowing that I will be off at the end of this week is making time go so slowly... I am ready to be home finishing up all the things I haven't yet done and beginning to enjoy the holidays (the hardest task!).

Today I have a card to share that we made at my class last week. For the holidays, I tend to make non-religious cards, Santa, snowmen, etc, but I was drawn to this angel stamp from the Stampin' Up "Angelic Joy" set. It's a nice size and the detail lends itself to watercoloring.

The angel was stamped using Memento Rich Cocoa onto Very Vanilla paper and colored with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an Aquapainter. She was cut out using a deckle edge die, sponged with Creamy Caramel, then layered onto Always Artichoke and Early Espresso. The background layers, from the "Deck the Halls" DP series, were tied together with some Vanilla seam binding ribbon and the greeting tied on with some gold twine. I added a few pearls in the corners to finish it off.

The inside was finished with a strip of the patterned paper and a die cut greeting, also from the "Angelic Joy" set, leaving lots of room for a holiday note.

It ended up to be a very pretty card and easy to make- good thing because I still have a lot to go!
