Festive Friday Angel

Good morning and welcome again to another year filled with Christmas cards every two weeks.  I know, you are probably thinking "we just got done with Christmas", but this is a way to get all those cards done throughout the year and not have to worry about a made dash in November.  I participated in this hop last year and got so many cards done and I even had some left over.  So come every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month and check out some new cards that we will be making...and lots of surprises too.  So if you just happened upon my blog or you are reading this in an email, please start here with Terri (our hostess with the mostess), but if you came from Angela you are in the right place, so sit back and relax and I hope you enjoy what you are about to see.

Today I made a super easy (I love easy) card, but it's so darn cute too.

I started by using my Amazing Mold Putty to recreate a button that I picked up over the holidays that came in a package of 6 different ones.  I love these cherub angels and I thought I could use it as an embellishment.  I created the mold first and within minutes that set up.  (If you want to see how this stuff works head on over to their site or you can check out a few other things our DT has made.)  Then I added the Creative Paperclay® and let that dry for a couple of hours.  Depending on the size of the item you are creating it can take from a couple of hours to 48 hours to dry.  Just be patient and check your mold periodically.

So here is the original button, the mold and the clay piece
I used my alumilite copper powder, and embossing ink pad
and my wings stamps from Viva Las Vegas
I stamped the images on some white card stock and used
a paint brush to spread the powder over the embossed image.
Then I fussy cut around them leaving a piece in the center
I painted the Creative Paperclay® piece with the Alumilite
powder also to match the wings.
I used mulberry papers and ribbon to create this cute card.
I stamped Merry Christmas with the embossing ink pad 
directly on the white mulberry paper and also used the alumilite powder to enhance it.  
I placed the embellishments on top of that to make it look as if it were in the clouds.
  The picture doesn't do this card any justice, believe me!!!

I for sure love the fact that I can make any embellishment I desire.
Now head on over to Cynthia's blog and check out what she has in store for you.  Remember there is a link on the left side bar with all the stops for you also.  See you in two weeks.
