I'm still making Christmas cards! Today's Mojo Monday Challenge seemed perfect for this angel stamp, which is pretty big. My card is 5" x 6.5." I used papers that were embossed and somewhat glittered. I even embossed my black strip under the lace by rubbing it on Versamark and using black embossing powder. I stamped the plain Colonial White oval with a music background like the dp I used for the angel. I used Bamboo ink so it was very subtle. When I stamped the Sentiment and embossed with black e.p., the Bamboo ink must have still been slightly damp because the black powder stuck to some of the staff and notes. I decided to leave it, hoping it doesn't distract too much from the word.
This next view shows more of the shine of these papers.
I also made this card for Craft Your Passion Challenge 89 - things with wings - and for Our Daily Bread Stamps. Their challenge was creatively called "NOEL," which stands for elements used in my card.
