Hark The Herald Angels Sing Card

Angel Card

A luscious layer of tinted vellum cascades over beautifully textured aqua cardstock…

An embossed journal box sets the backdrop for an angel announcing our Savior’s birth…

Delicate stars dance and sparkle across the heavenly skies…

That’s the vision behind my first Christmas card of the season and the coordinating envelope – created from some treasures I unburied in my stash!
