Delivering Candy Angel!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Polkadoodles┬ástamp called Delivering Candy – Winnie Angel. It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only a few days away. This little Christmas angel is all set to make someone’s Christmas very special.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was cut to the same size and attached to the base card using double-sided tape. I imported the image into Microsoft Word and then printed it out using High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. This stops the ink from smudging when you colour the image with your markers.

With my Cuttlebug, I die-cut the image and Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock using Penny Black Creative Dies – Antique Frame. U-Line double-sided tape was attached to the larger die-cut and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then added Stickles – Diamond to the snow on the bottom. With a UNIPosca PC-3M White marker, I created the snow in the sky. Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the wings and the halo. Once the Stickles dried, I adhered the coloured image layer to the card using U-Line double-sided tape as well.
