Angel Wings Card

Angel Card
Yeah! Here is one of the cards that I've created recently. I must admit that this was fun because I have never made a card like this before.  It is free standing with a circle window, peeking from the window is an angel medallion. 

  • I cut 2 pieces of cardstock 6 x 5 inches (DCWV the Street Lace Stack)
  • I scored each piece at 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch on each of the short sides
  • Since this paper was not double sided, I needed to line the inside of what would later become the back piece.  I used some of my paper stash and found Autumn Leaves assorted scrap pack and mounted it on the back.
  • I then punched a 2 inch circle centered in the front piece.
For the angel medallion I used my angel punch (not sure what brand the punch is, it is not labeled on the punch and I don't remember).
  • I punched 7 angels and scored them in the center.  I then glued them to each other, to make a half circle / fan.
  • I used my Fiskars scallop punches and punched one of each size.  
  • Mounted the Angels to the scallops and then centered them so that it could be seen through the window in the front.  
  • It would not be complete without some "bling" so I used my glitter glue for some sparkle.  I placed a dot of glue on each of the scallops.  It really changes the whole look.
 I thought that the circle window opening looked a little plain, so I carefully cut 2 circles and layered them over the hole.

I used another leftover scrap of the background paper and layered it on the front of the card.

I made a pretty bow to layer on the strip

No card is complete without a quote or sentiment, so I used a free sentiment from Rainbow Echo Designs it was Tameko's sentiments #2  "It is the little blessings that help us to see just how lovely life can be."

I again used my scallop punch to punch it out and then punched 1/16 inch circle punches in each of the scallops.  I used the scrap circle cutouts from when I was cutting for the opening.

There are a few challenges that I am entering this card into, they are:

  • Sentimental Sundays ~ "Anything With Wings" (Jan 18)
  • Aly's  Sunday ~ "Things With Wings" (Jan 22)
  • My Time To Craft ~ "Up in The Air"
  • Cupcake Craft ~ "Something New" (this is the 1st time I have attempted this type of card) (Jan 16)
  • Rainbow Lady ~ "It's All New to Me" (this is the 1st time I have attempted this type of card)
  • Allsorts Challenge ~ "Fancy Fold" (this new fold of the card I made)
  • Our Daily Bread ~ "Something Old, Something New" (Something old - my background paper and angel punch, Something new - the card style itself and the sentiment)

Note: This is not my original card design.  I was going to include the link to the tutorial for the card and cannot find the card that inspired it.  I promise to keep looking for it and will update this post with the link.
