Xmas Stamp a Stack, Pt 4, Project 3

Hi Stampers!!
I know, I know, I need to work on my faces!! My angel looks a little scary!! She is just a serious singer!!!
Have you figured out that this little gal is made from three ornament punches? Too clever!! Not me!! I got the idea from Sandi MacIver. She made the cutest little angel ornaments, but I wanted my gals to have a chance to make one at my stamp a stack ...so voila' she is on a card. Sandy used a knife to cut the slit for her "hair" but I used the slot punch - quick! I outlined her with small piercings but some of the gals forgot to do that before they mounted the folded white card base ..uh oh! problem!! NOPE!!! I just had them dot around the angel dear with a white gel pen instead. The gals get a little worried when they"goof" but to me those little oops! are an opporutnity for creativity. Do you recognize the bashful blue strip at the bottom? It is NOT a border punch.. instead it is from the Perfect Setting die. Handy, huh? The wings were made from some retired vellum. She could easily be used in lots of holiday projects. Give it a try!!

Lots of fun Peg. Thanks for sharing the tips that make this easier to put together. I've been trying to figure out a spring version of this creation except as a bee instead of an angel. Hm...maybe with the new stripes single stamp?
