DV #215 Christmas

Our challenge today at Dream Valley and through to January 6th is Christmas. We have three fabulous sponsors this time around, All Dressed Up 2 Digi Stamps, Di’s Digi Stamps with a $12 gift certificate, Dies to Die For £15 voucher, Fabrika Fantasy 3 Digi Stamps and Polkadoodles 3 Digi Stamps.

My Christmas card uses a Sue Wilson Christmas Angel Die from 2017. This is a 2 die set that cuts a star background and a separate die for the angel herself. I die cut her from pearlescent paper. the background was made with white card which I added Pixie Dust powders to and spritzed with water and then I die cut the background die from it and overlayed the whole thing over some holographic silver card. The sentiment is a stamp from my stash and embossed in silver embossing powder.

I made several of the same design, but of course the backgrounds are all slightly different as you cannot make the pixie powders go where you want them! The picture above is just 4 of them in a line.

I am entering this into:-
