Joy to the World – Christmas Angel

Happy Sunday!  Amid the laundry chores I am sneaking in Studio time…

This morning, I am playing with Retro Rubber (#195), Just Add Ink (#629) and Atlantic Heart (#498).

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Soft Succulent cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Basic White cardstock dry-embossed with one of the Charming Landscapes Embossing Folders.
  • Bottom Panel: (5¼” x 2”) Ombre patterned piece of paper from the retired Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Cross Strip: (7”) Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon.
  • Oval Accent Mat: (4” x 3”) Evening Evergreen cardstock die-cut with the (3½” x 2½”) Scalloped Oval die from the retired Layering Ovals Dies set.
  • Focal Image Oval: (4” x 3½”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The Winged Angel image/sentiment from the retired Wonder of Christmas (circa 2016) stamp set was stamped with Evening Evergreen ink.
    • The Angel was colored with various Stampin’ Blends MarkersSkin – Light Petal Pink, Hair – Light Crumb Cake, Laurel Wreath – Dark Soft Succulent, Wings – Dark Soft Sea Foam, Feathers – Light Soft Sea Foam, Gown – Light Mint Macaron, Banner – Light Soft Succulent and the Decoration – Dark Soft Succulent.
    • The Angel was die-cut with the (3¼” x 2⅜”) Oval die from the same set of dies.

All the elements were adhered to the card base to resemble the sketch.  The Angel Oval was popped up with Dimensionals.

Green is pretty much my most favorite color.  I love how serene and soothing it can be and is a lovely backdrop for this sweet Christmas Angel.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda.
