Vintage Christmas Angel Card

This is going to be a really quick post from me today, I just thought I'd show you the card I made using my favourite stamp from my new stamp set.

The image has been stamped onto the shiny side of frosted shrink plastic with Stazon. The reverse has then been coloured with Promarkers and the edges inked with a gold paint pen. I tore a piece of white card to match the contours of the image and then heat embossed it with gold powder before mounting the shrink plastic image. The backing paper was made using Distress Inks and my trusty Papersoft stamps. I've distressed the edges prior to lightly inking them and adding faux stitching. The image has then been mounted using foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today.
