4 March 2022 MTTCC #29 with Angels Christmas Theme Card for DT

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! I've got a small size Christmas card done 2 ways to showcase for this posting for March 4th MTTCC DT commitment. It's 4.25" wide and 5.5" high...that's it! And it's packed with angels--as the focal/sticker and in the main paper feature. Come join us at My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog and show us your Angel themed Christmas card creations! 

There is a 3rd Angel card shown almost at the end of the posting and it is shown on MTTCC as another DT inspiration project. Make sure to use the link and visit MTTCC to see what the other DT crew members crafted for this theme challenge!

Design notes:

1. Black cardstock bases made from 1 sheet folded in half and then divided for top fold/bottom open 4.25" wide and 5.5" high each (Pen + Gear)

2. Echo Park's Away in the Manger collection for the angel print cardstock (about 4" wide x 4.25" high) and the 2 angel 'elements' stickers

3. green cardstock sections are 4" wide and 1" deep (either Neenah or Pen + Gear)

4. bronze glitter and gold glitter foam stickers are from an ornament filler package (bought at Dollar Tree in December 2020)

5. green metallic foil 'dazzles' sentiments of 'Merry Christmas' (Paper Wishes website)

6. gold metallic gel highlighter 'pen/marker' (Creative Devotion; 1 color of a 3 color set) was used to contrast the angels in the cardstock paper versus the focal stickers; I knew with the very light sage green background and the ivory tones of the angels in both the cardstock and the stickers, that something was needed for contrast

7. black rollerball ink pen used to outline papers and angel stickers (for the angel stickers--this is another way to contrast from the angel print cardstock)

My 3rd Angel card and the 2nd one to be on MTTCC=

a few design notes about the JOY Angel Christmas card:

1. flat cardstock base in the beige, about 6.25" high and 4.25" wide (Neenah)

2. the taupe-y milk chocolate brown cardstock, about 5.75" high and 4" wide (Neenah)

3. olive green scrap pile

4. the 'snow scroll' is border pattern from designer paper from the Wal-Mart "the office" line; old stash item, might be 20 years old....

5. the angel is cut from one section of a folk art quilt type wrapping paper that has been in my stash for a long time--YES!!! 

6. yellow heart crystal gem and 3 yellow crystal gems = stash

7. JOY alphas = Freckled Fawn company

8. foam tape strips are under the angel to give it some lift off the surface
