Holy Triptych Assortment

I made an assortment of Christmas cards to send out this year. I always end up doing that because if I have to make too many of the same card I get bored. I think my favorite cards were the cards made with the Holy Triptych set. Since I sent my cards out the middle of last week, I figure it is safe to post them here now.
Until now, I hadn't worked with River Rock too much. I must say that I was very happy with the look of these card using that color, so I'm sure you'll be seeing more of my creations in the future using River Rock. I also pulled out my retired Cranberry Crisp ink and card stock for some of these as well.
The angel image is my favorite in this set. I colored her in a variety of different ways. On some of the cards I even painted her wings using a mixture of Future Floor Wax and Pearl Ex for some real shimmer and shine. Others were embossed in gold on Shimmery White card stock so those were preshimmered (I'm sure that's not a word...but you get my drift!)

Here's another set done in Eggplant and Forest. These are all embossed on the Shimmery White card stock. I had used my friends set of verses that goes with Holy Triptych on the previous samples and that works much better than the Merry Christmas greeting on these. It was kind of hard to make it all fit. I had fun making these except for the tedious cutting at the top of the arch on 2 layers for each card. That part wasn't much fun! I only ended up making 15-20 of these. Tomorrow I will show you the other cards I sent out.

Have a good day! Today is a snow day where we live...we got quite a bit of snow and it has been blowing & drifting so ~ no school! I'm sure a few friends of mine are very happy about that... since they're teachers! I'm going to stay home and wrap some gifts and possibly make some cookies.

I might have to share these with my sister, Who purchase this stamp set for making Christmas cards.

I'm sure that she has them made by now. But still she can still use this set for the rest of the Year.
