Earlier this week, I shared a Halloween Card using the Flight of Fancy Stamp set. You can see that card here: Flight of Fancy for Halloween. Today I am going to share a Christmas card made with that same stamp set.
The Flight of Fancy Stamp Set has images for several holidays, so it’s a great set to have on hand.
Since this was a Christmas card and I envisioned this angel flying over a snow covered city, I choose the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to use for the card front. I love snow..not that I get much where I live.
I love the pretty blues, greens and purples in this set of papers. If I can’t have snowflakes on the ground, I’ll take them on paper. I chose the colors from the paper to color my angel.
I always imagine angels with golden hair so I use Daffodil Delight for her hair and Balmy Blue for her dress. The houses are colored with Smokey Slate, Flirty Flamingo and and Mint Macaron. I also used another stamp set called For Unto Us that is chock full of Christmas sentiments.
I know I’ll be using this stamp set for many, many cards this year. And it has the perfect sentiment for my card. I debated how I was going to stamp the sentiment….on a circle? an oval? a square? or one of the many other die shapes I have? But I decided to be different and just did a little fussy cutting around the words instead.
To cut the Night of Navy cardstock mat, I first adhered the Whisper White Cardstock piece with the stamped and already cut words onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and then just fussy cut some more trying to keep the matting space equal all the way around.
