My card today features "Celestina", one of the six angels created by Annie for this month's release. I pulled out some MME Holly Jolly papers from last year (this was another one of my favourite paper collections, and I am sadly down to a few scraps now). The paper edges were lightly distressed with scissor edges after being sponged with some Bundled Sage Distress Ink. (I really do need to get a good distressing tool.) I also brushed some gold craft paint around the edges of the papers. The little chipboard corner embellishments are from Make It Crafty (available HERE). They were also painted with the gold craft paint.
On the inside, I've used another sentiment from the new Christmas Inside Sentiments Set. I'm loving how this set is encouraging me to finish off the insides of my cards. It really only takes a few extra moments, and it's easy to add a little touch of your design paper since you've already got everything out.
Celestina was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with Copic markers. Her wings and the little star were given a coat of Stardust Stickles. Celestina also comes with a coordinating sentiment, "Angel Kisses!".
