Thinking out of the box: using a holiday stamp set for a thank you card

Hello crafty peeps!  It's Jung here, and I'm back as a guest designer to share a card with you.

I'll be using Pretty Pink Posh angel friends stamp set.  I must admit that I bought this stamp set in early December with every intention of making holiday cards for my happy mail friends, but life got in the way, and I didn't make a single Christmas card this past year.  Ha!  Sigh.  I was determined to use this stamp set though, so I had to think a little bit out of the box.  I decided to make a thank you card, and hand write my own sentiment in the banner, since all the sentiments included were holiday themed.

Here's what I came up with:

I love how it came out!  The angel images are so cute, I just had to put them on a card.  I love being able to use holiday themed products on non-holiday projects.  This works...right?

Here's how I made my card:

  1. I stamped and copic colored 2 angels and the banner from the PPP angel friends stamp set.  Then I fussy cut them out.  I also added some glitter to their dresses, and coated their wings with Nuvo drops. (The Nuvo drops ended up cracking a bit, but I love the way it makes their wings look!)
  2. I hand wrote the sentiment in my banner.
  3. I die cut a piece of white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die.
  4. I used distress inks and a cloud stencil to make my background.
  5. I die cut a heart towards the top middle.  
  6. To create an inlay look, I glued the heart directly onto my card base.  I then popped up the background panel using foam tape.  
  7. I die cut the thanks sentiment from black cardstock 3 times, and glued them together for dimension.
  8. First, I attached the banner: I used foam squares in the center of the banner, and glued the ends right onto the background panel.  Next, I glued on the thanks sentiment to the heart.  The I attached the angels.  I glued the hands to the banner, and popped the rest of their bodies with foam squares.
  9. To finish off the card, I added a few sequins, and a few tiny drops of Nuvo drops.

Supplies used:

That's it for me friends!  I hope you like my card, and I hope you are inspired to use your holiday products in other ways!

Have an awesome day!
