I wanted to share a few cards that I was able to make and get sent before Christmas. The first one has a graphic from Christy Croll at http://tiddlyinks.com/ . She has some amazing art, my favorites of which are the fae. You will be seeing more cards and other ART featuring her graphics.
The fairy is all decked out for Christmas. All of the coloring was done with my Copic markers. I am by no means skilled at their use, but I love the rich colors that produce. Stickles were used on the main portion of her wings, with flocking as the final trim on the edges. I also applied white flocking to the white layer of her dress. After fussy cutting around the edges, I layered the fairy onto white glittered cardstock, then offset it onto red cardstock which has been run through the Cuttlebug using the snowflake embossing folder, then onto the white card. The last detail that I added was the word love set onto a scrap of the glittered CS, then tied onto very thin ribbon laces through two slips cut into the fold of the card. My oldest daughter, Malachia, was the recipient of this card. It was made especially for her.
The second card is one that was much simpler to make, but still made with love. My oldest daughter lives with my cousin and his family, and I wanted to make sure to reach out to them, especially during this time of the year.
Thank you for stopping by to visit. I hope that you have enjoyed the cards that I had to share, will leave me a comment, and come back again real soon!
