A Fairy on Top

Hello. I hope everyone in the UK has got their winter clothes out as it's definitely colder here. I wonder what weather my followers from other countries are experiencing. Please tell me in your comments as I'd love to know even if it makes me jealous, lol.

Today's card is a Christmas card using the LOTV image ' A Fairy on Top'. I thought this was really sweet and picked it as part of my candy win from Vicky's candy giveaway. I've used papers from LOTV's Snow Princess Solids pad as I wanted a really soft colour combination of white, turquoise and a little silver. I hope you like it.

A flat shot ...

A shot showing the Wink of Stella clear glitter on the baubles and a close up of the Poinsettias.

You wouldn't believe the trouble I had trying to get a photo showing the Wink of Stella shining!

I made this using a 6" square card and four different sheets of paper from LOTV's Snow Princess patterned and solids pads, three turquoise and one off white sheet (for the largest Poinsettia). I used Spellbinders Floral Ovals die for the image, Poppy Stamps dies- Blooming Poinsettia large and small and a Tattered Lace corner die(corner was cut from white card glittered with Glamour Dust in crystal clear). The pine branch was a Martha Stewart punch. The ribbon, from a pack of three ribbons, was from Marks and Spencer which I thought was too nice for Xmas presents. They've got something similar in store this year. The sentiment is a Cleary Besotted sweet little sentiments stamp and the Adhesive shimmer dots, in the flower centres and at the side, are from Papermania. I also used a silver metallic Promarker for the fairy and tree baubles under the Wink of Stella and a white pen for the spots on the dress.

Please tell me if you prefer the Card Recipe list instead of the above description. I haven't decided which I like or is easier yet.

  1. Wonderful this is just so gorgeous Debra love the stamp and you've used my favourite die I have to stop myself from using it all the time!!. The poinsettia flowers look perfect and I love that wink of stella might have to invest. I'm not bothered which way you list your recipe as long as you tell us what you've used I get frustrated if I see something and you have no idea what make it is. Enjoy you weekend with your son and I'm into Marks and Spencer looking at the ribbon next time I shop Take Care love and Hugs Carole x
