Glittered Gilded Angel in a Stylish Frame by Jean Okimoto


The delicate new Gilded Angel and Gilded Angel Background create a glittery focal point for the Stylish Frame Trio.  Add a greeting and a background from the Typewriter Holiday Elements Clear Stamps to finish it off.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a Christmas card in frosty winter pastels.


Attach Couture Creations double-stick tape to the smoother side of Romance cardstock.  Cut it with the Gilded Angel Background.  

Scrunch waxed paper into a loose wad and rub it briskly over the Gilded Angel die to help release the little pieces and delicate outline after cutting.   Cut Gilded Angel from watercolor paper.

Attach the detailed angel to the adhesive-covered background angel.  Brush ultrafine iridescent glitter onto the exposed adhesive.

Cut the small circle frame from the Stylish Frame Trio from silver glittered cardstock.

Stamp the large text background from the Typewriter Holiday Elements on smooth white cardstock with Starlite Black Brilliance.  Dry the ink, then cut the text with the largest Stylish Frame Trio die. Save both the inner circle and the delicate rings.  

Stamp "noel" - from the Typewriter Holiday Elements -  on the smoother side of Romance cardstock.

Cut accent strips from Limeade (¾" x 5"), Patina (¾" x 4 ½") and Romance (¾" x 4").

Attach everything to a top-folded 5-½" square card - use foam dots for the greeting.  


Square cards require extra handling and postage...but I hope you'll try this design for the special people on your list!

Thanks for visiting...see you at Impress on Sunday, or here on the blog next week.







Love your style, it's clean but always very creative and full of interest! You have brilliant ideas, thanks for sharing! Love how you used the colourful stripes to give life to the card! The Gilded Angel Background looks adorable with the sparkling and the scripted circle frame is just a catch-eyes!!

The pink glitter makes this card! Thanks Jean!
