Flight of Fancy, Christmas Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

What I liked about this set was that it served more than one "holiday".  Yesterday I made a Halloween card with the cute witch image. Today it's the Christmas angel and there's also a cute cupid but I won't be using that one for a while. I found this card on page 59 of the Stampin' Up! 2020 Holiday Catalog. There's no instructions, so here's how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Balmy Blue and textured it with the "Winter Snow" embossing folder. I love those snowflakes in the folder. They are so detailed and delicate looking. I wrapped some ribbon around the card. I thought three thin strips would look good but I was wrong. One wider one would look better. Or you could use a strip of Whisper White card stock and it would still look good.

I stamped the angel image from the "Flight of Fancy" set using black Memento ink. I colored her and the buildings in using Blends Pens. I used Daffodil Delight, Light Flirty Flamingo, Light Rich Razzleberry, Dark Mango Melody, Light Calypso Coral, Light Cajun Craze, Light Balmy Blue, Light and Dark Petal Pink, and Bronze. After coloring I used the largest stitched oval die and cut out the image. I set the image on top of the Balmy Blue piece using Dimensionals. 

The words are from the "Banner Year" set and the were stamped using black Memento ink. I cut them to a 1/2" x 3-1/8" strip and I fussy cut the ends. I taped it on the edge of the bottom of the oval.

The 4" x 5-1/4" Balmy Blue piece was set on the card base using Dimensionals. 

I glued some gold sequins to the stars in the sky and the card was done.

This was a very fun card to make. I don't think I've ever copied one from any of the catalogs. This card doesn't look exactly like the one in the catalog but it was good inspiration. Oh and I could not for the life of me make that folded ribbon that was on the original card!!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,
