Hark The Herald Angel
Card size: 4 5/8” x 6 7/8”. Cut white cardstock 9 1/8” x 6 7/8” then score at 3 3/16” and 7 3/4” (There should be approximately 4 5/8” in the middle. Be sure when closed edges meet). Cut decorative panels for the 3 inside sections and for the 2 outer sections that make up the front of card. Before gluing any paper on, glue half the magnet to the top 1 3/8” section in the center, add tape over the top so that magnet does not move while glue is wet. Put the other half of magnet onto glued magnet from the other side, add a drop of glue then close flap down, this will mark where the other half of magnet will go. Glue the half magnet down where glue spot is and add a piece of tape. (The tape will not affect the magnets pull). Glue decorative paper over the two magnet halves, one on outside short flap and one on inside middle section toward the top. Now finish gluing the rest of the decorative paper panels on to matching card sections.
Cut both decorative dies from lavender cardstock and from silver cardstock. Glue matching die cuts together, lavender to silver off-setting slightly.
Glue larger bottom die cuts to the bottom section of card front, close the top flap and glue the top decorative die so that it just overlaps bottom die slightly on the sides (make sure to put glue ONLY where the top flap is, you don’t want to glue the card shut!
Stamp and emboss using VersaMark and silver embossing powder, the stars and snowflakes x2, Heralding angel, angel with bird, and Noel. Die cut all pieces.
On the inside center panel, glue the angel with bird, Noel and some of the small stars and snowflakes, be careful not to cover where you know the magnet is.
On the top flap, glue the large star and some smaller stars to the 2 sides, glue the 2 large snowflakes and a star to the bottom 2 corners.
Die cut another Heralding angel from lavender as a back for the embossed angel (it will show when open, this will also strengthen the angel. Now pop up the angel to top flap only so that card can open.
Attach silver pearls as desired.
