Angel Christmas Cards

Even though we haven't celebrated Thanksgiving yet, I need to be working on Christmas cards.  I generally send or hand deliver more than 100, so I need to get a head start.  I decided to make some today and will post more in the future.

I have really enjoyed seeing the night sky backgrounds this year on YouTube.  While thinking of those coupled with a snow scene card I saw on YouTube (maybe on the Simon Says Stamp channel, but not sure), I developed this pretty card in my head .  Unfortunately, I didn't have the colors of distress ink that seem to be popular for the night sky scenes, so I pulled the colors I did have and played with them until I achieved a combination that worked for me.  I really liked the way these turned out and may make more later in the Christmas season.


I used the following products:
Paper Trey Inc - white cardstock
Georgia Pacific - white cardstock (to line the card)
Recollections - teal cardstock from the "Cool Water" pack
Tim Holtz - Joyful Song stamp set
Close To My Heart - Everlasting Life Holidays stamp set
Distress Ink - Iced Spruce, Faded Jeans, Broken China
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Versamark ink and clear embossing powder
1/2" corner chomper from We R Memory Keepers


Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
