squigglefly challenge #20

this week's challenge, SFC2012 Use a Square Peg in a Round Hole!

Think OUTSIDE the box!  Let me explain this Challenge:  we always seem to use standard things--round buttons, straight ribbons, rectangular 1/4 size cards,.... Instead: make a card that uses something usual: Pick a different card shape OR find some weird buttons OR use that unusual paper....pick out a different odd embellishment OR even better, use something you would never think goes on a card and inspire us all!

Recipe for this card include;

Tim Holtz angel die
Tim Holtz music sheet embossing folder
SU silver cording (retired)
Silver star buttons
squigglefly saying "angels"
Silver metal sheet
Black cardstock

all I did for this one is emboss the music sheet on black.  Die cut the angel wings and embossed with music sheet.  Wrapped silver cording around cardstock and glued down the wings. I pop dotted the second wing for more dimension.  I printed out the saying "angels" and cut around it and glued it down.  Then I tied some silver cording through the stars and glued them down.  Wallah!  A fun angel card.  


  1. wow Karissa, you really thought outside the box on this and it paid off beautifully! I really love the texture to it, especially love the silver fiber wrapped around the card with the tiny star charms. Great job! Thanks for playing in Squigglefly's challenge!

    1. Thank you Holly! I love how the angel wings turned out.
