Christmas Angel Card By Sue

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue has made another adorable Christmas card to share, I hope you enjoy it.
Sue has used "Christmas Angel", one of the newly arrived Christmas stamps by CC Designs.






























Products Used:
Cardstock: Xpress It Blending Cardstock with White & Cherry
Paper: Echo Park - Everybody Loves Christmas
Stamps: CC Designs Christmas Angel & Hero Arts Clear Holiday Sayings
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black & Ladybug, Distress Ink - Antique Linen
Copics:  E50, E51, E31, E35, E37, R0000, R01, R20, R22, R24
Spica Glitter Pen - Clear
Dies: MFT Dienamics Decorative Doily & Faux Crochet Border.
Ranger Stckles - Crystal
Dimensional Magic
1/4" Circle Hand Punch


















Tutorial:
Cut Cherry Cardstock 140mm x 140mm, the striped Echo Park paper 65mm x 140mm, white cardstock 15mm x 160mm.
Cut the Faux Crochet boarder from the Cherry cardstock.
Cut the doily from white cardstock, distress the edges with a sponge and Antique Linen Distress ink.
Stamp the sentiment onto the white strip of card with Ladybug ink and cut a triangle out of one end. Distress the edges as with the Doily. I have added a little bit of a ‘hump’ and the end with the sentiment by breaking the grain in the paper, running it through my fingers curling it slightly and then going back the other way... do this a few times until you are happy with the curves in the paper.
Stamp the angel onto blending cardstock, colour with copic markers and cut out.
Cut the holly leaves from the Echo Park paper, use the 1/4" hand punch to cut 3 holly berries from Cherry cardstock.
Assemble as pictured.
Lastly add the finishing touches, stickles to the wings and the head piece, clear spica pen on the socks and dimensional magic on the berries and you are done!
