Stamping Angel for Terri's Birthday

I had a lot of fun making this birthday card for my best friend Terri!

Did you notice that this crafty angel is scattering rubber stamps to all below? What a great card for a fellow stamper! I started by coloring the angel with Copic markers and cut it out with an oval Nestability. Then I cut the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangle from black card stock. I needed something to break up the black corners that showed, so I cut a red rectangle to fit within the Fleur de lis rectangle and embellished the corners with a white Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

I love the Heartfelt Creations wide lace border die and this card seemed like the perfect opportunity to use it! I cut it from white card stock and mounted it on a square card base of Stampin' Up! Crushed Curry gold card stock. Some ribbon to jazz it up added a festive bit of fun, but it still needed something. I rounded the top corners and it seemed complete. The rounded corners echoed the oval cut of the angel panel and the curves within the lace design.

Inside I used this fun birthday stamp by Stampin' Up! The card was a big hit with Terri. It is a lot of fun to make cards for other stampers as they really appreciate the work you put into it!


  1. Beautiful card!!! I wish that fairy was over me lol :) Would love to catch stamps from thin air. Great colors and I love how the framed image goes off the card.

    1. I moved the matted image up off the top of the card because I didn't want all of the lace die cut to be covered up, and wound up really liking it better that way! They call it a "tent topper" card as it only really works with a top-fold card. :-)

  2. Lovely image & I echo Colleen's sentiments...I would love to have that fairy around! :)

  3. Wow what an amazing birthday card Lynne.
    So beautiful and the coloring is brilliant. I love it. xoxo

  4. Beautiful card and loving the lace die. x
