Rejoice (Lis Whiting)

by Lis Whiting

I wanted to use the new Angel cutting die from Frantic Stamper; I decided to cut it out of gold glitter card stock.  I chose on a a card base of plain white and I covered the front with a white patterned pearl paper. 

I edged the entire card front with one row of white pearls.  I also decided to add a little color and cut out some holly on a rich green suede paper. I attached my angel with glue stick (TIP: I dabbed it on  - don't rub or you'll get clumps because of the intricacy of the die cut.) I used the flourish from the cut out of the angel as the "music" she was blowing on her horn.  I added a few music notes (another great Frantic Stamper die) in gold glitter also. 

I added my green suede holly branch at the bottom of my card. I used some red jewels for the berries and added a couple of poinsettia flowers in acrylic and the word "Rejoice" (from a Dazzles sticker set). 

I really like the way this card turned out.  The suede paper adds a tactile accent and the two acrylic flowers add that 3-D effect I like so much.

  1. Lis,I love how you used the cutout's from the angel to replicate music! Awesome idea! Nice thing about the dies that Kathy designed is you can use the cut-outs for additional work!
