Golden angel

So back to Christmas cards.  I've done this one with my mum in mind.  She doesn't read my blog I don't think so I'm safe :). She saw the angel stamps and art pad in Lili of the Valley last Christmas so I thought I'd do her one for a surprise this year.

The image is Holy Light which I've coloured with ProMarkers.  Once I'd coloured and mounted the image onto the card I added some glitter for the snow effect.

I wanted this card to have an overall golden glow.  I've used a shaped card and cut some backing paper in the same shape from Papermania Capsule Collection.  Over the top of this is a square piece of plain gold card then a square piece from First Edition Gilded Winter.  The angel image is also backed with some plain gold card.

The embellishments I've used are some self adhesive lace border from Hobby Craft, a piece of cream ribbon edged in gold from Lili of the Vally Little Bags of Ribbon, a pearlised laser cut tree and dove from Hobby Craft, a white poinsettia from Lili of the Valley and some self adhesive gems in clear and gold.

Hope my mum likes her.

  5. She's beautiful. I love her headpiece-coming from a former dancer where anything worn on your head is indeed a headpiece. I love the gold for Christmas cards because to me it just makes them classy. Thanks for sharing your card at Christmas Cards all Year Round. Our new November challenge started yesterday.
