Christmas Angel Card

Hi Everybody,

I want to show you is this adorable Christmas Angel Card that I’ve made for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week, the theme is Angels of course and here they are…


The card as a whole was a little difficult to photograph as no matter which way I turned it I couldn’t get all of the pictures to show without a bit of glare. See what I mean…

P1030233            P1030238

The angels were cut-outs from a magazine, so the paper is a little glossy. There are quite a few layers involved, a doily is right on the bottom and inked in pale green for the background, the edges are distressed and the bird is popped up for some dimension.


The bow is a beautiful shiny seam binding ribbon from the Craft Queen and the flowers are Kaiser Craft paper flowers layered up with some pale blue rhinestones – also from Kaiser Craft. The gold sequined ribbon is a scrap from an off-cuts bag from Spotlight.


I’ve taken a few photos from different angles to try and catch the beauty on this card. I really love how it turned out, even though it is not something I would normally try.
Hope you like it….I’ll be back with more in the next day or so, at least another two cards to share this week.

Don’t forget to check out my Blog Candy Blogaversary give away, it’d be nice to get it drawn before my next anniversary! lol.

See you next time Smile
