Little Angels

I just love this cute Lili of the Valley stamp, although this is the first time it's seen ink!  The image has been coloured, as per usual, with Promarkers, then I highlighted Glamour Dust and added Stampendous Gold Halo Mix to the tinsel halos, I think this is the blingiest glitter I've ever come across, it's so sparkly.
I made the easel with two kraft blanks, so that the top section opens like a regular card so that it can be written inside.  The papers are also Lili of the Valley, they're called Frosty Christmas and are my latest craft crush, they're in the loveliest shades of blue.  The star border punch is Tonic, one of my SECC buys, I've used it loads already.  I was a bit naughty, and whilst Christmas shopping in Hobbycraft, I picked up a set of Sizzix nesting tree dies which were on special offer, they were to big a bargain to pass up!  I die cut the tree from white card and embellished with Liquid Pearls covered with Glamour Dust which I then pushed weeny pearls into,  The holographic (bright gold in real life!) stars were made with Xcut dies and I finished off with a ribbon, bow, die cut sentiment from Papermania and some iridescent gems.
