Angel Wishes

 This is it!  Last card for 2014!  And a very special one too, but I can't divulge too much until I get it sent.   The funny thing is, between August and November I have trouble coming up with ideas and then in December, when I don't really have the time, I have WAYYYYYY too many ideas!  So I will have to do those in January before I forget.

These little angels were done with a cut file from My Scrap Chick and the box is from the Christmas box set from Svgcuts. The box actually had a train in the front and more ornaments, but I left those off to make room for the angels. The back tree is glitter paper but the darker tree is embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Irish Spring embossing powder.  The red ornament is also glitter paper.  The sentiment is Stampin Up Christmas Messages done in Silver Detail embossing powder.  The card folded up is rather large - 7.5" x 8.5" so I'll have to head over to Marco's Papers to find the right envelope.  I haven't figured out how to use my envelope punch board for one that large yet!

 I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown  - Pick a 2014 theme - I picked Angels, of course

Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season!

Midnight Hour Christmas Cards!

Merry Christmas!

Just thought I'd show you my latest (and quickest) cards since this is the weekend for mailing, right?

The card on the left is done with a Great Impressions stamp I borrowed from my good friend Terry.

I embossed it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's White Spark embossing powder and sponged with Memento Summer Sky and Bahama Blue.  The snow is also embossing powder, stamped with a Gorgeous Grunge stamp.
The second card is Stampin Up's Wetlands and Hardwood stamps.  I tried putting a wreath around his neck like I've seen on Pinterest but finally settled for a festive bow. 

Off I go for one more special card and the Christmas mailing!
Thanks for visiting!
