Illuminated Angel

I was delighted to be invited to be a Guest Designer for the Rudolph Days April Challenge.  The challenge runs from the 25th until the end of each month. 
I bought this Creative Expression 'Illuminated Angel Striplet' die at a craft fair last year, when I saw it for half price.  The black die cut was attached onto pearlised white card and layered on yellow card.  I inlaid the blue and yellow sections.  Although this took a little while, there was no way I would have had the patience to inlay all the white parts!  I used a Couture Creations Embossing Folder 'Jo Jo' for the panel on the right and added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White to the centre of each star.  I can't recommend these Crystal Drops highly enough.  They're so easy to use, forming a perfect dome in the require size, and no chance of falling off in the post.  Just remember to leave them to dry overnight.  Saves on buying pearls too.  

You have 6 days this month to enter the Rudolph Days challenge and be in with a chance to win a lovely prize.  

I am joining on the following challenges:

  1. Very classy card - it certainly takes patience (and time) to inlay die cut pieces but so effective.

  7. Your card is gorgeous! Loving that die and now cannot wait to give mine a try.

    Thanks for the tip about the Crystal drops. They look wonderful beside your angel and sound as if they will be much sturdier than using bling. I really like the look of them.

    Thanks for being my guest designer this month!!!

  18. Wonderful card, so striking in those colours. I have a love hate relationship with nuvo drops, some of mine don't level and dry with a spike on top. Cara x

  21. This is such an elegant card, and I love doing inlaid dies like this one :) It takes me to a far away place where my mind goes completely blank and I love it! I just bought my first bottles of Nuvo drops, and I can attest to what you said! I love that they embellish beautifully without having to add extra postage, but the best part is that the bottle NEVER clogs! YAY!
