Hello there, Christine here with a slimline Christmas card. I have a small collection of Christmas angels, so once I saw the new Glory in the Highest die set, I knew that I had to make a card with it! I love to do paper piecing and so that is what I did for this card.
First I placed double sided adhesive sheets on the back of gold vellum, gold cardstock and white cardstock; this makes it easier to do paper piecing because the cardstock and adhesive is so thick that very little (if any) of it sticks to the die. I then had fun making two angels that look very different, with the different cardstocks and vellum, one you can see in the photo below and the other is on my card. I’m saving the second angel for a different card.
I did the exact same thing with the die cut sentiment, I die cut it 3 times out of adhesive backed gold vellum, gold cardstock and white cardstock and then I paper pieced them together. The only copic coloring I did was the skin color for the face, hands and feet, everything else is paper piecing.
Sometimes when I don’t have a lot of time (which is lately a lot of the time), I will take a shortcut and ink blend over colored cardstock. I love the look of distress ink oxide blended backgrounds, but they do take a bit of time to get it just right. Here I started with a blue piece of cardstock, die cut it with the Slimline Scalloped Card Panels die set and simply ink blended a darker blue on the edges. I then added gold paint splatters all over the panel.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful day!
