Christmas Angel


I made this card using the Christmas Silhouettes Stamp set from Inkadinkado. The angel, snowflakes and sentiment were stamped with VersaMark and then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder. I cut out the angel with my new Nesties Curved Rectangle Dies and then bordered her with gold metallic papers, alternating between the cream and the gold with 4 layers.
One thing I am still not sure about is the bow. I am going to take a vote to see if you think I should leave it on the card or remove it. I tried two different size of ribbons and I placed the bow all over the card to see where it looked the best. I kind of felt the card needed it, but I am still not sure. So, what are you thoughts on the bow? Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Yippee ... I get to vote first, teehee! My vote is to KEEP the bow! I think it's a perfect accent and really balances out the card ... which by the way is absolutely gorgeous!!! I haven't seen this set yet ... "might have to have this one". GREAT job Joan ... the gold is so regal and perfect for this time of the year!!

The bow is perfect! When I first saw this stamp set, I wasn't sure that I liked it and had a hard time imagining what the images would look like. However, no more! You made them look gorgeous! Best, Curt

I always have the same dilemma with bows so you are asking the wrong person to vote on this one!! lol But I will say the card is beautiful just the way it is right now. That is a wonderful set.
