Hello once again. I have been working on Christmas cards that would fall under the category of "easy to mail." My favorite type of designs usually include lace, ribbon, bows, etc.--beautiful, but not always so easy to mail.
I began with Authentique Tidings decorator paper...same paper pad used for my Christmas tag posted below. This pad has 24 unique patterns in the pad...most all grounded on a kraft colored base. Very nice paper!
I used a paper crimper for the striped border that runs along the center of the design. This adds a bit of interest to a somewhat plain card.
The angel is from JustRite's clear "Great Joy" stamp set and was stamped onto ivory cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copic Sketch markers. A die from Spellbinder's Nested Oval Medallion Labels was used to cut the image out. The image panel was popped up with Thermoweb 3D Foam strips for a bit more dimension.
The sentiment is also from the JR set Great Joy, and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
