Christmas Fairy - Friday June 29th

Morning log Friends,

I'm holding back the big project I completed earlier this week for a few days so I'm afraid it's another Christmas card and I really do promise not to bombard this blog with them just yet, just a smattering over the weeks ahead (maybe one a week?)

This is another LOTV stamp, which I think is adorable. Last weekend I stamped some Christmas designs from LOTV, House Mouse and coloured them with my promarkers ready to make into cards when I get the chance!

 This is a small card, I always make large 8x8's for commissions, but I really love little cards with lots on them and I think this type of layout really suits stamps like LOTV's.
You can add just the right amount of ribbon, lace, die-cuts and somehow the image tells you when to stop - am I making sense? :)

I started with a white 5x5 card blank, which is matted and layered with red card and a grey/gold paper from a pad in my Christmas stash box. I coloured the fairy/angel (I know you can tell by the wings, so someone will have to remind me!) with promarkers and used Cosmic twinkles to highlight the wings and the snow. I die cut her on Spellbinders Labels One Small and also die cut a larger size in red. I also used my favourite poinsettia die again, but unlike the previous card where I used felt, this time I used card. The Christmas tree is cut in glitter card using a die from Spellbinders Fanciful Holiday and the  gems, beads and sentiment are all from stash. It's actually quite exciting to open the Christmas stash boxes again to see what delights I'd forgotten were there!

The ribbon was in my Christmas ribbon box, yes I do keep a separate one for all those lovely ribbons most suited to Christmas and I do love this one! 

Hope you like my second Christmas card...thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting everyone!
