Joy to the World

Here's another try at a monochromatic white card. I really love how this card turned out (not how it photographed). I tried to vary the whites and added a little silver glass glitter for contrast.  I started with plain white cardstock for my base. Then I used a piece of shimmery white cardstock for the background panel. I dry embossed the panel with Tim Holtz's angel wings and highlighted them with picket fence distress stickles. The sentiment was cut from cryogen white cardstock using the Tim Holtz Stacked Word Christmas Decorative Strip and then highlighted it with picket fence distress stickles. The ornaments were cut from a Spellbinders die. The images were stamped using Stampsmith angels in London fog memento ink on Ranger specialty cardstock and die cut with a circle die. These were adhered to the ornaments. Using glossy accents around the images I added Stampendous glass glitter. I think that this gave the ornaments a real vintage look.
I am entering my card into several challenges. The Stampsmith challenge is monochromatic white. The Stampendous challenge is to use some Stampendous essentials (the glass glitter).The Ink on My Fingers Sunday challenge is vintage. Simon Says Stamp has an anything goes challenge. Marks Finest Papers Friends of Speedy has a Christmas challenge.

Beautifully festive.
