Sing Choirs of Angels

Hello Friends!

I am still working on Christmas cards and decided to use the ODBDSLC265 Color Challenge  (it was a bit difficult for me to see all of the colors in this array so I used a shade of green closer to the pine needles with Vanillam Cherry and Gold- hope that was OK :-)) along with the ‘Tis The Season "O Christmas Tree" Challenge  and Simon Monday “Holly Jolly Stamping” Challenge for the design on this set of Christmas cards.

If you have not already had a chance to do so, I hope you will visit the above challenge sites and check out the amazing Design Team samples as well as the galleries!

I just love the new Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Sing Choir of Angels stamp set and it was an easy set to use for multiple cards.  FYI- I already had some tall narrow envelopes on hand (4"x6") and decided to create cards to fit the envelopes:-)

To create this card:

Pearl was added to the tree top after photo was already taken:-)
De-static a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the ODBD Sing Choirs of Angels using Versamark™ ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
Create the banner using Wild Wasabi and retired More Mustard cardstock (I used the Banner Triple Punch), adhere the two layers together, mount behind the focal image panel and add the 5/8” Gold Satin Ribbon bow.

Trim the piece of retired designer paper and mount onto the Cherry Cobbler card front, add the focal image panel with dimensional foam and finish off with the Pearl in the center of the star on the tree.

Another one of the DSP designs 
I was able to create 24 of these cards in a few evenings with the help of my MISTI® Tool (love my MISTI®)!

Stamp Sets: Sing Choir of Angels (ODBD)

Ink: Versamark™

Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, retired More Mustard and Be of Good Cheer DSP (all Stampin’ Up!)

Accessories: Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, 5/8” Gold Satin Ribbon, Pearls, Banner Triple Punch, MISTI® Tool

One more of the designs 
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- the ladies in my Bible Study have been such a wonderful blessing to me this year!!  They seemed to enjoy the cards and I am so thankful that I was able to create them for my friends!  

Hugs and have a great weekend- God Bless!

What a lovely clean and simple Christmas card, Julie! I have to admit when I started reading the words on the Christmas tree I couldn't help but sing the song in my head! Then they just, you know...came out of my mouth! lol Thanks for sharing with us at 'Tis the Season.
