Angel Christmas Card

This card is for my DT post over at movingalongwiththetimes

I have matt and layered my 8x8in cream card with black and then gold card. I have rounded the edges of these these layers and inked the edges of the gold layer. I have die cut the angel using a Sue Wilson in both black and gold card. I glued the angels together slightly offsetting them. I then inked around the edges and attached it to my card only at the body, head and arms using 3D foam pads. I die cut the "Joy" using a Sue Wilson die, cutting the fancy element in gold and the solid element in black. I have glued these together and then inked them before attaching them to my card using 3D foam pads. I die cut the poinsettia in gold using  Tattered Lace dies, I inked all the edges before assembling them. I attached them to my card and then added flat backed pearls to them. I completed my card by adding flat backed pearls and ribbon.
