A Christmas Angel and Sparkling Snow

Hello and Happy Sunday folks!  Guess what?  The lovely Sue Wilson is live on TV at HOCHANDA.com, found HERE.  Check her out. Her makes are absolutely stunning and her showcasing tutorials super inspiring. Gosh, if you look closely, you might even recognize a couple of the displayed cards shown in the backgrounds... (gushing with excitement over-here) :)  THANK YOU Sue! What a tremendous honor! 

 A Christmas Angel
I absolutely LOVE this Angel. It is multi-layered in white and Silver for dimension. The embellished background was dry embossed then I added extra pizzazz with the star cuts from the same die set and topped off with bling. This card is quite sparkly IRL.

 I've always liked cutting-out multiple sets of my die words to layer. The last layered die-cut is cut out with the darker of the paper colors to place beneath the word and that gives it an illusion of shadow and depth. Much like I've done here with the "Let It Snow" word. What do you think? Have you tried doing that too?
