My first project features the new Angel Wings Die, Sheltering Angel Stamp, and the beautiful Rustic Beauty Collection papers, along with items from previous releases - all detailed further down in my post.
To make the first card I stamped and die-cut the sentiment panel and wings, die-cut the fancy foliage, layered flowers and leaves, and then worked on the arrangement. I chose an alternate orientation on my Angel Wings and then noticed after-the-fact that they might be sideways... Maybe this was meant to show how versatile they are :)!!!

I love playing with the layout and placement on my cards - After all the elements are created. I enjoy moving things around on the card front until it sort-of speaks to me. I rarely glue anything down until I've explored all my options. And once everything is stacked/popped and glued I love adding those final perfect little touches - in this case those were the tiny rhinestones and dabs of glitter :)!!

|Angel Wings on Wood|
To make this card I started with the wood slat paper, stamped the sentiment in Craft Black ink and then clear-embossed over it. Next I die-cut the Angel Wings, Fancy Foliage and tiny flowers and started assembling. The paper is adhered onto over-sized brown card stock, leaving enough space on the bottom for some gold liquid pearls detailing.
I especially love the rustic look combined with the beautiful angel wings - it's just a bit unexpected :).
