Angel Ornament

Hello CottageCutz friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

IT'S NEW RELEASE TIME! Our annual Black Friday release is in the store. It's the Campin' Out release with 14 ever so cute designs and they are currently on a 30% off sale. It's perfect for year-round card making. And the Christmas release Part 1 and Part 2 is also available. There is still time to get Christmas dies ordered and delivered for Christmas card making.

Today, for your viewing pleasure I have a Christmas card in non-traditional colors using the Fairy Angel Ornament die. It's from the Christmas Part 1 release. So, let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:

I started my card this week with the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #873. We were to use blushing bride, mint macaron and crumb cake for our color trio. Optional was to add bling.

I chose some metallic ornament paper from my stash that had two of the challenge colors. I thought it would a great backdrop for my angel ornament. I love the paper but metallics are not easy for me to capture a good photo. This paper has lots of silver on every ornament, but it doesn't show on the photo. If you have any tips, let me know. 

mint macaron card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
designer paper layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Next, I cut my fairy angel ornament in the pink cardstock and decided to use some white glitter paper for the background. I used the largest die from the Circle set to cut it. 
I had a bit of a struggle trying to figure out how to get the crumb cake color in my design. It doesn't have to be a lot, but it has to be there. So, I found some paper in my stash that had that color in a muted way. 
I cut it in a small banner and stamped my sentiment in a medium brown ink. 
Now that all my card elements are prepared, I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the designer paper to the card base with double sided tape. 

I attached the angel ornament to the glitter paper with Art Glitter glue. It dries clear and hold securely. 
I used silver cord as the ornament "hanger" and also added a silver cord bow for interest. The ornament is attached with double sided tape.

To finish off my card, I attached the sentiment banner with double sided tape and scattered some mint faceted enamel dots for the bling option. And that's my sample for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for the angel ornament die. See you next Saturday!
