Wonder of Christmas with angel from the Holiday Catalog

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!  How wonderful is it to hand craft a Christmas card with the Message proclaimed! Among the many choices of holiday card components, this has got to be among my favorites. It is the reason we celebrate Christmas.


Today’s featured stamp set from the Holiday catalog, Wonder of Christmas, has 5 sentiments, this pretty angel image and a background setting image of stars.  The sentiment on her banner can be masked off and you can put in another wording that fits into the space. I see many possibilities with this stamp set.


If you can get a close enough look at her hem line, you will see that her slip is showing. I created this by cutting a piece off of a paper doily, cutting off her feet with an adjoining section of the paper and then putting it all back together with the lace doily in between. To me, it kind of looks like a natural part of the scene. I used the rest of the doily in the background layers. The coloring is done with regular Stampin’ Write markers and a water brush. I added shiny accents with glitter glue and metallic gel pens.

Thanks for stopping by today for a daily dose of card inspiration. I will continue to bring more card examples to you from the Holiday catalog in the days to come and hope you feel a spark of inspiration for your holiday craft projects.

Let’s make it together, all through the year,
