LOTV Flying Angel and a recycleTip....

 Hello again, today I have a Christmas step card to share with you I made for a commission. I have used LOTV Flying Angel and coloured her with my usual Copics then added a little Star Dust Stickles. Other items used are....paper from the Me To You Winter Wonderland pack, fabulous papers!!! White Knit In Lace with a silver trim, Dusky pink 25mm Organza ribbon and large crystal brad from Mei Flower, Large flower Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart Holly punch, deep pink adhesive pearls from The Hobby House and the Circle sentiment is my own, designed in word art.

The large snowflake below was punched with a  Sizzlit die. 
You can't really see it very well in the pic but it is cut out of the sponge packaging you get with mail order goods sometimes. I had been saving it up every time I ordered an outfit for the four weddings I've been to this year and decided to have a go at snowflakes. In real life they look fab but as I said the photo does not do it justice. Just a wee tip for you, look around and see if you can use other materials for your die cutting you never know what treasures you might

Below is a photo of the snowflakes before I attacked them with stickles, you can see them much better against the green background.

Well that's it for me today, thanks for sticking with me to the end of the post, I'm off to get on with more Christmas cards and I might look for a challenge or two to fit my card. I don't seem to have the time these days to look for them, so I'll have a wee browse.


  1. Beautiful. A sweet stamp and lovely subtle colours. Great idea using foam packaging, I have throw out loads of the stuff. Your card would be eligible for Top Tip Tuesday this week, it's layers and your tip would be appreciated too. Elaine
