I think...Christmas Angel from Sarah Kay


Hi all...another long...not posting time. I have, like I said made too many handmade gifts for Christmas and it really cut into my time with my cards. I enjoyed making all of the gifts, but...miss my cards :)
This image is what I think is called Christmas Angel from Sarah Kay. I used Die-Cut Die Pad from K&Company for the background paper. I used Versamark to stamp the image and then embossed in gold embossing powder. Such a pretty image I think.
The presents I made for my friends and family were made from what I bought from Hobby Lobby...BOX...I think it is called...I added a string of 35 lights and then put Wedding Petals in white to cover the wires. Then I added some trim to the sides. The ribbon was bought from Hobby Lobby (can you tell I love this place?). Gold ribbon around the box to make it festive and elegant!

I hope you enjoy these creations I have made...I was thrilled with the actual reactions I got at home and at work.
Thank you for sharing and for your comments and visits!!

Velta, the top card is too cute and fabulously done. I really love the glass block with lights. My MIL made me one years ago. I wanted to make them myself, but did not realize the box could be bought at HL. Does it have a hole in it already for the light strand? I just love these and I am sure your friends will be thrilled! Awesome bow, too!

You've been busy working on some very pretty hand-made gifts! I just LOVE the glass block, and it reminded me that I made one of them 2 years ago and haven't seen it yet this year! I wonder where I put that?? Thanks for reminding me :) I really love that gorgeous bow you put on it too!!
Have a wonderful holiday season Velta!!
