To a Special little Angel


Todays card has been created from the new Sandra Kuck Angel stamps, it might be a little ironic that I should use these stamps today after the last two postings Ive done, but I wanted to make a card for my youngest granddaughter who Im going to visit on Saturday. You will remember that I created a Thank You Miss card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge last week, well I posted the card to her last weekend, and my daughter sent me a text yesterday, to say that she had given it to her teacher, and it seems the teacher was that thrilled with it, that she told her she intends keeping it forever, so I just wanted to give Taylor a card for herself.

Its a gorgeous stamp as you can see, and Ive stamped it onto white card and again coloured it with my copic pens, Ive then cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto dark blue card. I also used one of the sentiment stamps from the same set and mounted this in the same way, before actually attaching them to the mount I have used one of my catseye inkpads to distress the edges of them, then used foam tape to mount them up.

The base card is again one of my 8"x 8" inch white cards with a dark blue card first mount and one of Laura Ashley papers, this one has a huge Hydrangea flower on it, Ive then used another mount with a plainish paper for the second mount and a further diamond pattern for the third one, both these were mounted onto a pale blue card.

Ive then mounted my stamped image in the centre of the card, with the sentiments stuck underneath. To finish of I have used some lace flowers down each edge of the card.
