Wishes For A... Merry Christmas

Sorry I have been kind of AWOL lately, but I have been very busy baking lots of fun sweet treats for my granddaughter, Alanna's Annual Hot Chocolate Stand. [Alanna is 11 years old and has been fund raising for about 5 years now]. This past Saturday she was able to raise over $800 dollars for our local Out Reach For Hunger. I am so proud of her! Hope you don't mind if I share a few photos of the day's events.

More Goodies!
The weather was perfect, the hot chocolate and goodies delicious and her customers extremely generous. An absolutely wonderful day!
 
So, now on to my card. A couple of weeks ago, I was blessed with a gift certificate to Eureka Stamps and this is the first card I've made with one of their adorable images.
 
 


This photo shows the removable tag on the front that has the rest of the sentiment on it.
 

 
For this card I printed out the image 5 times; once on plain white cardstock; the other 4 times on an assortment of pretty printed papers. I then coloured the Angel's face with Copic markers and fussy cut her out. Then I cut out the different parts I wanted from each of the printed ones, shaded them with ink and layered them with silicon [for dimension]. This way I was able to get the pretty print on her wings, and robes.
I used a couple of different Spellbinders' dies, a Tim Holtz's die and a Whimsy die to cut out the background, the holly leaves, flowers, the snowflake edge and the Merry Christmas sentiment on the tag.
I added some pretty lace, cording, antique pearl buttons, gross grain ribbon and lots of glitter to dress up my card. I also folder embossed the flowers before rolling up.
Loved working with this Eureka image and looking forward to working with the other ones I got!
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
hugs,
Nancy
