Christmas Angel

 
Another card to add to my Christmas card box. My box is slowly getting filled up for the holidays.  My plan is to have all my cards made, envelopes addressed and cards mailed by Dec 1st. 
For this card, I played around will embossing powder and a snowflake border stamp. After stamping the angel, I stamped around the edges of the paper with embossing ink.  I love how it turned out.  The die cut snowflakes were cut using the Christmas Noel Cricut cartridge.  I then embossed them with the same embossing powder.  After I was done stamping and coloring, I remembered I had this fabulous snowflake ribbon in my stash and it works perfectly with the embossed snowflakes.  I also painted Tildas halo, wings, dress and star wand with extreme glitter paint.  I love the overall effect and will have a hard time giving this card away.
