Angel in white and gold

With Christmas quickly approaching I've got a Christmas card on the menu for today.

I used my angel stamp and a sentiment tag from LOTV.  I stamped the image onto vellum with gold EP, colored the stars with a gold gel pen and gave the angel a golden paper pieced dress.

The star die cut is covered with gold EP, I used a die from Marianne. 3 gold bling and a a star eyelet from my stash were also added.

The background is embossed with a Spellbinders EF, matted onto gold cardstock, and I added a little bit of white and gold frantage.

This card is for these challenges:
Twofers - #7 Things with Wings
Challenge Up Your Life - White and gold
Clear It Out - Theme: White + 1 Color Stash: your choice (bling)
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long -  Anything Goes

This is so pretty! Vellum intimidates me, I mess up everytime I've tried to use it for stamping. The gold embossing (and especially with this sweet angel) looks grand against the softness of the embossed background. Adding in the star die made a perfect embellie and I liked the tiny sentiment tag too. Think this is one of my favs of all your wonderful cards! TFS & Hugs

Hi Pia, I have this stamp, but I have never thought to use it in this way. Your card is stunning and wonderful! The paperpiecing dress is just perfect and the stamp in gold on the acetate is a great idea to make an elegant card! The embossed panel looks very well!
Love this starring semicircle, it matches wonderfully with the angel! Great card, thanks for the inspiration!!

Wow, Pia... another time I want to say, "you outdid yourself!" I'm mean, the angel in gold on vellum with a pieced dress? You go the extra mile, and it pays off! Of course I love the star die, the eyelet, and the subtle embossed background.

Mimi said...

Wuh-oh: I just eneed a card with you to Clear It Out... but mine is black+white+(one color)... gold... I hope they let me count black as a non-color... I mean, it's the absence of color, scientifically speaking! :) good luck
