Angelic Christmas Card

I love the newest plate of Holiday themed images, this angel stamp has so many possibilities. With a little manipulation, such as trimming the background away, it can be used any time through out the year for other projects.

  1. Stamp the image on cream colored card stock and neatly trim out.
  2. Color the hair yellow, the wings gray, the leaves green, the dress blue, the skin is colored peach and the object in her hand is burgandy.
  3. Cut the printed back ground paper out about 1/2" larger than the stamped image and mat it.
  4. Attach the image to the card front in the upper area.
  5. Attach a 3/4" strip, that is the same width of the matted image, of the printed paper about 1/4" below the image and attach the acrylic drops.
  6. Enjoy sharing!
