angel of light

This is the card I sent to Carol as part of the Chocolate Baroque Guild card swap - having done quite a few all-white cards, I headed the other way for this colour-wise. Having sent it, I did start to wonder if it was a bit gloomy for Christmas, but fortunately Carol liked it!
Base card was 8x8 silvery pearlescent, and the angel image from Chocolate Baroque was stamped on white card with versamark, embossed with Stampendous twilight EP. I tore the image out, embossed the torn edges with vanilla ice EP, mounted it onto torn black  card sprayed with Crafters Companion silver spray, edges embossed with vanilla ice again. Final torn backing layer was white card run through a snowflake embossing folder, rubbed with weathered wood distress ink, then sprayed with silver bells glimmer mist before being embossed round the edges again with vanilla ice (haven't got much of this left, and it was only a small pot from Graphicus in the first place, so will be looking for something similar after Christmas).
 Flowers were cut from differing shades of silver pearlescent card, 2 with a Marianne die and 1 with a Crealies die; mini gems added to centres. Silver scrolls were from a Sizzlits die.
I would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas, and a happy and healthy New Year, and special wishes to the lovely people who follow my blog - thank you


  1. It's a beautiful card Vronnie. My sister Jean used the same stamp to make a card for me but in a very different colour scheme, and that was lovely too. I can understand why Carol was pleased with it.
    By the way, I put a little something in the post for you today. I hope it arrives during next week. Kate xx

  2. This is gorgeous and not gloomy at all.

  3. A beautiful card no wonder Carol liked it. Happy Christmas hugs x ChrisB

  4. It:s a gorgeous card Veronica and not at all gloomy. The main image looks as though it's illuminated from behind.

    I wanted to wish you a very Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year. Have a lovely time.

    Lots of love
