Unity Stamp Co. and what fun it was!!

Hi everyone! I have a quick post for you tonight... I know this is a Christmas card, but I waited to share it because this card was sent far and beyond! Plus I used my Unity Stamp that I won from Rachel at Bucket Full of Cards. (Pop in for a visit... Rachel has such AWESOME cards!) I chose the Retro Bubble Frame... you can double stamp it and create two layers... with or without the circles on each side. It is a bit of hand cutting, but VERY GORGEOUS!! This is the frame around the angel which is from SU! (Retired set!)


Click on the photos for a closer look! I did add sparkles around the red frame, sponged the edges to give an aged look, added gold 1/2 pearls, Stickles on the Angels wings... and even cut the wings for a 3-D effect. She's flying off the card!! Have a super evening... keep warm... and enjoy your weekend! It's coming quick... and I have a few Valentine's Day cards I want to start. Thanks for the visit, I LOVE IT!

SMILES... Michelle :)

Yowser, Michelle, the details make this card EXTRA special. I LOVE it! Angels are very special to me because my mom loved them so much. The hand cutting was definitely worth it!
