Trimming the Tree

Trim the Tree

Trimming the TreeHello there!!! It’s just starting to look like spring here, so that must mean that it’s time to make a Christmas card!! This week at C.R.A.F.T., our theme is just that, Christmas!  We have 2 amazing sponsors, Star Stampz and Digital Papercraft :)

 

 

 

 

I used Imagine Fairy Girl, from Digital Papercraft for my card.  She’s not really a Christmas image, but I saw her reaching to put a star on the tree as soon as I came across the image :)  I colored her with my SN markers, then glittered up her wings (of course….fairies need sparkle wings!)  I fussy cut her out, then die cut 2 trees, which I cut up and layered, then decorated with glitter.  I mounted them with foam pads on a die cut shape that I edged in doodles, and placed a glittery star in her hand.  I put this on a DP background, then found some coordinating ribbon to accent the corners.  A bow and a stamped sentiment finish this off :)

I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Hi there!! It’s time again for another challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.  We realize how easy it is to leave our Christmas cards until the last minute, then fly into a panic in December, so we’ve been giving you Christmas theme challenges throughout the year to help out a bit.  And with THAT preamble, you have probably guessed that our theme this week is Christmas!! Lol :)  For our sponsor, we have the fabulous  Nikki Burnette :)

Coffee FairyI was given the beautiful Sadie, to work with.  I colored her up with my SN markers, then glittered her wings up (because I have a firm belief that fairy wings sparkle!!)  For the cup and saucer, I dotted parts of each with a white gel pen, then colored them over again with colored pencils to get the polka dot effect without losing shading detail.

For the papers, I dove into my Christmas scrap folder and had some fun :)   I tied the bow, then adhered some candy canes that I fussy cut from another paper scrap and topped with Glossy Accents.  A computer printed sentiment and some silver glitter baubles finished this card off :)

I hope that you can stop by the  C.R.A.F.T.  challenge blog and enter a Christmas make, and while you are there, check out the beautiful inspirational projects that my amazing teammates have created :)

I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Robyn’s Fetish – Glitter and a Bow

Crafting When We Can – #125 Things With Wings

Heartfelt Wishes

Fairy DotsMade this card after a few ideas flew out the window.  Head is still in an allergy induced fog…..blah!!! The image and sentiment that I heat embossed are from a stamp set that was included as a free gift with a magazine, and I really felt it lent itself to the mainly black and white color scheme of the card.  Both Wags n Whiskers, and Chocolate,Coffee and Cards are having “polka dot” theme challenges, so I used 3 different “dotty” papers, that I have had laying around for yeeeeaaaars!  The card needed just a bit of color, so I added some red sequins, that I found in my Mom’s craft hoard when she passed away… and some red trim to jazz it up a bit.  That makes it fit in with Oldie But a Goodie‘s current challenge, which is ‘black and white + 1′.
