Our fortnightly Christmas Card Club challenge has been set by the lovely Dawn which states that you must include an angel in your project. My angel is from an old US Stampin' Up! set called Holiday Helpers and the sentiment is also retired from the UK Idea Book, Welcoming Words.
You can heat emboss the angel in gold having first dry embossed the designer oval frame onto whisper white cardstock. To add more texture you can use your simply scored scoring tool and using the dotted scallop ribbon border punch to add a brushed gold card stock frame. The sentiment can also be heat embossed and a ribbon bow in whisper white taffeta is a cute finishing touch for a cute angel. The ribbon also takes up Hazel's challenge on her Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge and the layout is taken from the Less is More Sketch challenge from the ever popular Chrissie and Mandi's challenge blog.
Here's the sketch.
