Jumpstart You Christmas Card Making: Christmas Angel

Not exactly a jumpstart at this point so I saved the easiest of the three cards for today. I also felt it was an excellent card to tie into the celebration in the church today of All Souls Day. When you are finished making these lovely cards take a moment to say a little prayer for those that have gone before us.

Materials:

Colonial White Cardstock
Colonial white Card base
Crystal Blue Cardstock
Crystal Blue Ink
Slate Ink
Green & Blue Adhesive Dots
Adhesive
Sing Glory Stamp Set (Hostess Exclusive Set) message me to order.
Embossing Folder ( I used a cuttlebug swirls)
Cricut Art Philosophy





Run your colonial white card base through your embossing machine. Make sure to only emboss the front of the card. Using your Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge you will want to cut a crystal blue tag shape with a coordinating colonial white inset layer. It does not matter what shape you choose. The diecut will measure 4x5 and the insert needs to be just smaller than that. Stamp your angel stamp in crystal ink. There will be a bit of the stamp hanging over the edge but don't worry it will still look incredible. Stamp the sentiment in slate. Adhere the layers and add your bling and you have a quick yet beautiful card to get in the mail. Bravo!

Traditionally Soul Cakes were given out on All Soul's Day. A quick rendition that we use around here is plain old fashioned doughnuts. So feel free to grab a plain doughnut today to help you reflect on the those that have gone before us. Blessings my friends.
