Believe Card with my2angels Christmas White Angels

Believe Card....
Hi Keonie here popping in today to show off the White Christmas Angels,

and Red Christmas Angels which are back in stock at my2angels.

I used the White Christmas Angel
for my card

Started this card using one of the Twiddleybitz White C6 cards which are just awesome - great size and good weight for using mediums.

About half way down I then punched a whole using a circle hole punch (I used fiskars squeeze one). Dangle the White Christmas Angel (which is now back in exciting) over the hole you just made with the circle punch and roughly mark with a pencil where it will hang over the hole (this will make sense in a minute as it just means you don't put fragments or glass glitter there), and how far above the circular hole you will need to make a small hole for the brad (this will hold the Christmas Angel in place).

Now, drizzle some dimensional magic or Glossy accents right around the hole (both are OOS but back in on Friday). Be a bit liberal as you are now going to sprinkle some of the Stampendous Colour Fragments Powder Blue, and some of the Stampendous Fresh Green Glass Glitter all around the hole to create like a wreath.

Tap off the excess and store it in one of Tracy's gorgeous little vial glass bottles to use again next time. I also added some clear/white microfine glitter too just to add some extra sparkle. In the gap left at top of hole, pierce a small hole about half a centimetre from edge.

Thread a 7mm silver jump ring here and leave it open so you can thread the chain of the Christmas angel onto it (I did this about three chain rings up from the angels' head). Once you have done this, also add the extra little pearl dangly that comes with the Angel, then close the jump ring carefully so you don't pull the jump ring through the card.

OK, now where you marked the spot up higher for the brad to go, pierce this with a needle or piercer, and place a white brad through the hole but not all the way. Place the very top ring(the one with the star) over the brad, then puch the brad right through the card and split at the back to secure.

The angel should now dangle over the hole but not swing all over your wreath. I embellished this then with a little white bow. The patterned paper on the card came from the new Kaiser Mint Twist range which I punched out a few circles, distressed the edges and layered over each other. Then took a small strip of the Kaisercraft Candy Stripe paper and randomly pleated this before sticking it down with DS tape.

Added extra bling then with white and silver rhinestone chain, and using glossy accents, adhered a new gorgeous little ribbon bow charm and a bit more Stampendous glass glitter.

 Finally, add a title, some my2angels rhinestone circles, and hand draw an outline with black Sharpie pen. 

Merry Christmas !!!
