The Littlest Angel

I’m afraid to ask how many days until Christmas!  Would you believe only 116!  It’s time to start preparing for the approaching festive occasions – Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  I thought September would be a great time to craft our first Christmas card for 2015.

Angel 1 001I’ve entitled this card “Littlest Angel on a Starry Christmas Night.”  With a color theme of Night of Navy and gold, the background is embossed in Lucky Stars with some of the raised stars and the card edges lightly sponged in silver.  I just received the chalk ink, and you may prefer sponging with chalk instead of silver.  The circle Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum is shown here, but the gold patterns used will vary.  Although I have vellum adhesive, I prefer not to use it and have held the vellum securely in place with glue dots placed under the gold areas. 

Angel 1 006The Littlest Angel is created from several punches/thinlits.  Can you find the tree, heart, arrow, circles and owl punched pieces?  The two butterfly thinlits?  The halo is formed with gold cording.  The angel can hold a gold or white glimmer star.  I chose to use simple messages on the inside and outside layers and added a die cut Merry Christmas Thinlit at the bottom.

This is the first of four cards we will be making at our September Stamp Camp on the 3rd, 4th and 5th.  Times will be the same:  2-9 PM on the 3rd and 4th, and 9 AM – 4 PM on the 5th.  You can choose the day and time that works best for you.  It is helpful to let me know ahead if time if you plan on coming, but it is by no means a requirement.  The cost remains $12.00 and covers all supplies – all you need to bring is yourself!  Check back soon to see the next blog post on Clouds and Rainbows.

By the way, did you receive your Stampin’ Up Christmas Catalog?  If not, stop by and pick one up!  This is one of the best catalog’s Stampin’ Up has put out in several years and is guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit!!!
