Angels and Bells! (posted by Maria)

Hello everyone, once again you can see the beautiful Angel from the A child is Born stamp set passing by!

I made this card by creating a background using watercolour powders. I have coloured the angel with alcohol markers here, but of course you can colour it with pencils or Distress Inks. I cut the angel out and placed the image with 3D foam on the card. The snowflakes are stamped with Versamark and white embossing powder.

On this card I first made my background with Distress Inks in the colours I liked and I stamped the leaves   with Versamark. I used golden embossing powder to emboss with my heat-tool. Then I stamped my bells on some white paper, and coloured them in with my alcohol markers. I cut the image out with a die cut , and leaving the die cut in place, coloured all around with the Distress Ink. I removed the small card from the frame so that there was a beautiful white frame all around, and placed it with 3D foam on the card.

Have fun making your Christmas cards with all the fantastic Christmas stamps of Chocolate Baroque and enjoy!!

  4. Both beautiful, thank you so much for sharing.

  5. Mooie kaarten, Maria! Vooral die eerste is prachtig!

  6. Two gorgeous cards. I think that angel is popular with everybody as she is so lovely and makes the perfect centre piece of any card. The colours are lovely and the embossed snowflakes look great in the background. Likewise the bells which are obvious favourites too and I like the way the topper has been inked with the die in place to leave that lovely white edge and the pretty embossed leaves in the background. x

  7. These are beautiful. I particularly like the first one

  8. Two gorgeous cards Maria. The angel looks stunning. Love the backgrounds.
    Hugs, Flo xx
