Snowman Angel

Happy 2017!!

This is my first post of the New Year.  Do you have any New Year resolutions?  Do share.  :)

I have a few, one of them is to start making Christmas card early and often.  For my post today I am sharing a card made for a few challenges:

I wanted to use angel, however I don't have any angel stamp, so I got creative and invented a Snowman Angel.  :D  What do you think?

I place stencil over white card stock, and sponge with Broken China; then heat emboss sentiment with gold EP, and add small strips of gold glitter tape on each side of main panel and adhere to grey blue card base.  My snowman angel has butterfly wings, and its halo is a gold embossed letter 'O' (from the Ribbon Letters by Lia set).

The stencil, stamp & cut set and fancy die are all available at a2z Scrapbooking Supplies.  If you go shopping there, use code Cindy15 to get 15% off any purchase $25 or more  (excluding shipping).

The a2z store is run by volunteers to raise funds for Celiac and Behcets awareness.  Your purchases go toward good causes.

I have the same resolution Cindy - I want all my cards done and dusted by November so I can enjoy the festivities in December. I love your cute snow angel and using the letter O for the halo is a genius idea!!! The wings are beautiful and she has such a sweet expression on her face.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Happy Little Stampers and I hope you will join us again soon.
