Angel Swing Card

     This is my first ever swing card and it was inspired by using the "Angel 4 Front and Back" from Ike'sWorld for the latest challenge starting today.  As always, our theme is "Anything Goes" but we always have an optional twist if you want to use it.  This week you have an option of "Angels or Demons."  I chose Angels and did one more card for my stash.

  


     I colored with my ProMarkers and added loose glitter to the wings.  I didn't get a photo of the back of the angel but I did the same thing on both sides.  I adhered the images to each other adding the string between them before gluing.  Then, I cut the images by hand so that the shape would be the same on both sides.

     I took midnight sky CS, added it to my card front with removable tape, then cut the oval with a die from Spellbinders, going through both layers.  I took them apart, then used double stick tape to add the angel in the open oval, and permanently adhere the two layers together again.  I used the blue oval inside the card to act as a backing for the angel when the card is closed.
