Perfect Pearls Angel Card


For this card, I'm using Perfect Pearls in a technique that works flawlessly and gives gorgeous results.  You just need a couple of colors of Ranger's Perfect Pearls powder and some water color paper.

I've made 12 of these cards for my aunt for her Christmas cards.  Today's tip is to cut your cardstock for the card base a quarter inch narrower than normal to make getting cards into the envelope easier.  Sometimes, I find I've put so much on my card it really is a tight fit.  These fit fairly easily at regular size however, I think it will be a lot easier on her to have a bit of extra space.  You don't want to struggle getting cards in envelopes when trying to get holiday cards out the door.

Here's the video on the card:

Anyone cooking yet?  We are going out this Thanksgiving - my parents choice.
Thanks for watching!

  2. Great card.
    I have yet to try my hand at using the perfect pearls.
    I thought they were like a powder, so would have thought putting a wet/damp paintbrush in the container would ruin or clump the perfect pearls that are in the container.
