Holiday Inspiration Group - 12 Days of Christmas - DAY 4




Welcome to Day 4 of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew".  We’re a group of online crafty blog friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with tons of Holiday Inspiration.

This is another simple card I made 24 times for my Church Christmas Card project. I used a Stampin' Up Angel stamped in Smoky Slate, a Stampabilities sentiment stamped in Versafine Onyx and embossed with clear embossing powder. I finished it with some dots of silver Stickles. To save paper, I created the black border by running a thick marker around the edge of the paper.

Don't forget to visit all the crafty ladies participating in this event each day for loads of fun Holiday craft ideas!

Fabulous, Ardyth ... that bold, Stickles enhanced sentiment is so striking (and beautiful with the angel!). Great border ... I do the same thing with a marker pen ... it's always a pitter patter moment! Anita :)
