Are you ready Christmas (the most wonderful time of the year)?

Each of the Creative Architects’ for Innovative Stamp Creations were given a different Christmas line to create a card! So I am wondering:

Have you started Christmas shopping yet (me - yes - I actually have a friend who is finished and thinking about starting her wrapping - we can all hate her later okay)?

How many handmade Christmas cards have you created (I am over half way there)?

Do you buy store bought Christmas cards instead (nope it's either handmade or none)?

So I hope my Christmas card will inspire you to either get started or complete your Christmas cards today!

I thought this Angel needed an elegant background so I used the cream, black and gold color palette. The angel was blended with antique linen distress ink and gold stickles applied to her wings. I used a gold dabber on the textured background panel (cuttlebugged) and the bracket panel. Some gold embossing, Krylon Gold paint pen finished the card.

Please be sure to visit our Talented group of Creative Architects’ and become inspired:

Happy Creating!

Beautiful creation and wonderful image matched by a perfect colour scheme. I have purchased some Christmas presents and completed some Christmas cards and I agree with you it's handmade or none at all. I would be so pleased to receive a card like this. Have a lovely day, Tracy Evans x
