Angel Ornament Card

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Hope your weekend is going well and you had some crafty time along with getting your Christmas preps done. We had some friends over for dinner last night. It was a wonderful evening and my appetizers as well as main course was a big hit. And today we have another Christmas get together to attend. So I wanted to get my post done before we leave.

Today, for your viewing pleasure I have a Christmas card in non-traditional colors using the Fairy Angel Ornament die. It's from the Christmas Part 1 release. So, let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:
This card I created for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #873 and for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz blog. Karen was the hostess on SCS and she chose blushing bride, mint macaron and crumb cake for her color trio. Optional was to add bling!
blushing bride, mint macaron, crumb cake

I chose some metallic ornament paper from my stash that had two of the challenge colors. I thought it would a great backdrop for my angel ornament. I love the paper but metallics are not easy for me to capture a good photo. This paper has lots of silver on every ornament, but it doesn't show on the photo. If you have any tips, let me know.

mint macaron card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
designer paper layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Next, I cut my fairy angel ornament in the pink cardstock and decided to use some white glitter paper for the background. I used the largest die from the Circle set to cut it.
I had a bit of a struggle trying to figure out how to get the crumb cake color in my design. It doesn't have to be a lot, but it has to be there. So, I found some paper in my stash that had that color in a muted way.
I cut it in a small banner and stamped my sentiment in a medium brown ink.
Now that all my card elements are prepared, I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the designer paper to the card base with double sided tape.

I attached the angel ornament to the glitter paper with Art Glitter glue. It dries clear and hold securely.
I used silver cord as the ornament "hanger" and also added a silver cord bow for interest. The ornament is attached with double sided tape. To finish off my card, I attached the sentiment banner with double sided tape and scattered some mint faceted enamel dots for the bling option.

Well, that's it for me for this post. So, until next time.........God bless.
