Another Angel Card (sorry!!)

Here is another card I made using the Holy Triptych angel — I’m sure you are tired of seeing her but I really like this angel!!

This was actually my first card with this set – I made it a few weeks ago. It was for one of Beate’s weekend sketches, but I don’t think I ever got around to posting it on here. I gave it to my MIL to use for one of her Christmas cards. To make a little on the lighter side, I used Basic Grey dp – Popcorn Balls from the Dasher line. I thought it was a really fun contrast to the “serious” stamp. Plus, I really like the paper – fun colors and a funky pattern!

It is hard to tell in this pic, but the angel was stamped on vellum in Black Stazon. After I cut her out I dry embossed her from the back to emphasize and whiten her wings. They sit up nicely on the card — irl it looks quite neat! I also colored her from the back, using my SU markers.

All in all it is a pretty simple card. I love the way the swirls inside the *tag* look — so pretty! I colored the stamp with markers. It took an extra minute or so, but the end result was exactly what I wanted!

Here is the fine print:

Stamps: Holy Triptych, Baroque Motifs
Paper: Brocade Blue, Ruby Red, Whisper White, Vellum
Ink: Black Stazon, Ruby Red
Accessories: stylus, organdy ribbon, ticket corner punch, large eyelts, dimensionals
Techniques: dry embossing

  3. they all look so different. I wish you’d video some of this stuff or take pictures of the process, too! Wow! I can’t imagine what “colored from the back” means! So talented!

    I love the fun look! An angel at a Christmas party, no doubt!
