Hello there!  It’s time for a new challenge at Cards in Envy – where we make cards that fit in envelopes!  Cards for our challenges should be A2 sized (4.25″ x 5.5″) and have no lumpy, bumpy embellishments more than 1/4″ thick, so that the cards can be mailed at the standard first-class postage rate.  For the next two weeks, we’d like you to be inspired by a song.  Choose any song and make a card based upon it.

When my husband and I first started dating and commuting to work together, we used to listen to the oldies station on the radio.  One song that became a favorite of ours was “My Special Angel” by Bobby Helms.  I decided to choose that song for my inspiration for this challenge since this cute little angel stamp was almost begging to be used.  I die cut some fluffy-looking clouds for the angel to stand among.  I stamped the angel on a scrap piece of cardstock, colored him, fussy cut him out, and then attached him to the card.  There’s a bit of Wink of Stella glitter pen on his wings, which was hard to capture with the camera, so that’s why I have two photos of the card here.
