Paint the three ice cream sticks with the white paint and allow to dry thoroughly.

  1. Draw a circle with a diameter of 1.1" onto the piece of printer paper. Paint it with the flesh paint and allow to dry thoroughly before cutting it out.

  2. Use the silver pen to draw "zig-zag stitches" all around the blue-and-silver cardstock.

  3. Score the blue cardstock to make a card sized 7" x 5".

  4. With the fold at the left, center and glue the blue-and-silver cardstock to the front of the card.

  5. Glue the three ice cream sticks to the front of the card to make the angel’s body.

  6. Glue the flesh circle to the card to make the angel’s face.

  7. Cut the wings from the cupcake wrapper and glue them to the card.

  8. Glue the wiggle eyes and hair in place. Use the scissors to shape her hair neatly.

  9. Use the black pen to add nostrils and a mouth, and use the maroon pen to add rosy cheeks.

  10. Thread one of the sides of the net fabric with a tacking stitch and gather the frills together, before ending it with a secure knot. Glue the net fabric on top of the ice cream sticks. 

  11. Use the star shaped rhinestone to add a button to the front of the silver dress.

  12. Glue the five rhinestones in random places to the card.

  13. Glue the resin heart to top of her head to make a crown.

Who would not want to open up an envelope to find this quirky and cute angel on the front? I know my mom will go crazy if I make this card for her because she loves anything angels. She has everything from jewelry to shirts to candles with angels on them at her house, so why not a card too?
