Hip to Be Square Mojo

Hi friends! It's the last Monday of the month, so we're going for a non-traditional shape with the Mojo Monday sketch this week.  It's hip to be square!

Handmade Christmas card by Julee Tilman featuring Verve Stamps. www.poeticartistry.blogspot.com

My card is a sneak peek of the new Angel Voices stamp set that releases from Verve this Saturday, October 1.  I paired it with some pretty My Mind's Eye papers and some glitzy gold die cuts to set things off.  This was a super easy 15 minute card, perfect for crunch time during the holidays.  :)  The angel is embossed in gold onto vellum and then I colored with Copics for a stained glass effect and cut with the coordinating Angelic Die Set.  The sentiment is also embossed in gold, then I simply sponged all my layers and glued them down, adding a bit of linen thread and a rhinestone to my sweet little angel tag.
