Paper Angel of Wonder
by Marnie Bushmole

Good Morning!  Holiday preparations are in full swing here.  I did find a little time to play with some new techniques.   Today my cards background uses one of these.   The card is embellished with a gold matte and shiny Paper Angel(she is so adorable) layered on top of card stock and matte gold card stock cut from the Pinpoint Circle Layers.  For the greeting I stamped the word "Wonder" from the Words to Live By stamp set, in Versamark by Imagine Crafts and embossed it with Imagine Crafts Gold embossing powder.

For this background  I've used Tulip dry fabric dye as a watercolor medium.  It is so much fun to play with and I love how the dye reacts when water is added.  Here I have used black dye only, I wet the sprinkled dye then added some drops of Perfect Pearls Mist "Sunflower Sparkle" for a hint of gold.   I love how the black dye had all of these other colors pop out of it not just black but pink and oranges as well. 



Where can I get this angel?

So beautiful...using the fabric dies for your background is just genius! And I love the angel die cut from the gold....I need that die!

The angel is really lovely...I searched for it and could't find it. Wondering if it's premade and not a die? Hope we get an answer!

Yes, it is a die from Memory Box, look in the holiday section. You will need to go to your favorite retailer who sells Memory Box to purchase.


All of the dies and stamps used on the card are Memory Box and available from your local stores. A list can be found above in store locator or even online. The name of the die is Paper Angel if you click the InLinkz below the picture it will take you to it on the Memory Box site.

Thank you! When you click on the Paper Angel icon in the supply list, it leads to an error message "this product not found, etc"....

I really like this card. Love the angel and the background, too. Wonder is a great word for this season. Thank you!
