Sugarplum Wishes and Angel Kisses for Dreamweaver Thursday

The team has been busy this week with the Patty PopOns hop, and our weekly challenge of "Sugarplum Dreams and Angel Kisses". Now it's Dreamweaver Thursday, so I think you can guess just what challenge I went for today! I created this card for our July catalog where this lovely "Standing Angel" stencil was introduced to the Stampendous product line. I think she is so elegant, so I simply pasted her in silver on a panel of Core'dinations glitter cardstock. The card base was the same cardstock, but machine embossed on the front with the "Crusade Background" design. Teal aluminum was also machine-embossed with the same design, but without the embossing mat, so the design is there, but smooth. The center of the design was traced out, and metalworking tools were used to emphasize the embossing in that area...a paper stump, a large ball tool, a Teflon tool, and a decorative edge wheel for a more finished look. Now the center section could be sanded to reveal the design more intricately.

You can tell easily what my team members are playing with this week, so go for a look-see!
