Angel Xmas card

This is another Xmas card
I did make my daughter's birthday card today but I can't reveal until later - don't want to spoil the surprise!

The background is stamped onto the card.
the angel was stamped out in silver ink & then cut out, outlined with stickles & mounted on sticky fixers.

I used silver craft wire (from a set of different coloured wires that I've had for ages!) to make the halo. I wound the wire round a pen to get the round shape & then twisted the ends together & popped it behind the head.

I was going for the simple but striking look :-)
Mind you it took quite a while to produce this 'simple' card!! :-)
