Vintage Angel

Happy Holidays! Jodi here with a couple fun ideas for you! First, I want to share an ornament I created. I wanted an old, vintage looking angel for my tree. I remember seeing some made from doilies and decided to try my own.

Using pages from an old book, I cut the body from English Tea Party Doily, and the arms are the small center doily from Polynesian Sails Oval. After gluing them in cone shapes and attaching together, I created the wings by scrunching the center of the Italian Flourish doily.
Once the angel was complete, I embellished her with the Miniature Rose and leaves from Small Leaves #2.

I had so much fun putting my angel together that I decided to make a larger version with the daycare kids. They love when I get the machine out and let them cut out their own dies! For their angel, we used the Mega Tea Party doily for the body. The arms are the Italian Flourish Doily. The largest die from Scalloped Window Stackers became the head. I think the parents enjoyed seeing the kids’ projects as much as the kids enjoyed making them!

Here is a picture of my angel next to one of theirs so you get an idea of the difference in size of the regular dies compared to the mega doily.

I also created a card for you!

Rather than cut out the snowflake, I opted to emboss the die Snowflake #2 unto Coredinations cardstock, placing the die slightly off the edge of the paper. I sanded the embossed details of the die for a fun texture. Once the snowflake was prepared to my liking, I lined up my die from Classic Circle Silver Stacker and cut out a circle containing the snowflake, and layered on top of the Circle Scallop Nesting Die. In the middle of the card lies the Classic Coved Rectangle Silver Stacker, layered with the Classic Coved Rectangle Nesting Die, using Lace Light Deco Border to dress up the bottom. Lastly the Classic French Flair Silver Stacker layered on the Scalloped French Flair Nesting Die creating the card shape.

There is still time to enter this weeks challenge for your chance to win one of the lovely prizes!

Thank you for taking time to stop by on this busy day!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with lots of love and laughter!
