A Sparkly Angel Card



     Hello ladies!! Is it Monday already??? Where has the year gone? Anyways, today Erica has asked the Design Team to use our Cricut's and make something with an angel. I made a card using my Imagine cart Snow Angel and the new cart A Quilted Christmas.
     I cut this from the card feature on page 52 of the handbook from A Quilted Christmas @ 7". I also did the shift key for the insert piece. Although I love silhouettes, this card was calling to me to add some more definition of the cuts to bring her to life. First I started by using Broken China distress markers to shade the cut areas. Then I went to work adding some sparkle.
     I used Cinnamon and Gold Stickles for her hair and Diamond Stickles for the "wings". I wanted some depth so I used white liquid pearls to the wing cuts as well. I also used some clear rhinestones to outline her arms.
     There is a heart cut on the dress so I used this great pearl heart that I had in my stash. I also added some Silver stickles to the dress.
     This gives you a better view of her all decked out. If you notice her hands, I used a Sepia liquid Embossing to add some color as well as depth.
     I finished this card off with some white feathers (hey, an angel has wings, right?) and a wonderful metallic silver ribbon.
     I hope you have enjoyed my card for today. Now be sure to go back to My Cricut Craft Room and see what the rest of the team has to show you.
