Peace on Earth


I've switched back into Christmas mode for a day here to make a few cards. The angel die is from GinaMarieDesigns, and she was cut from the package she was mailed in! Yep, it was a brilliant red bubble wrap mailer and I knew right away I'd have to use that to do some craft images. I pulled the bubble wrap off the back and used the front to cut this angel. I left all the pieces in tact because I thought it looked pretty that way. I put her on a GMD stitched oval, and used a piece of retired SU! dsp. The sentiment was cut using a Die Versions Sweet Wordlets die.


Here's a version with all the negative pieces removed and I used a glittered piece of dsp for the background.


and here she is die-cut with a piece of gold metallic cardstock.

I'm sharing the first card with the following challenges:




Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a super weekend so far!
