The Christmas Fairy


For this week's Flutter By Wednesday card, I went all Christmas-y! I dug out one of the first Lizzie Anne Designs stamps I ever got, the fairy, and paired with with a sentiment from one of their newly released sets, Christmas Magic.

I used some old cardstock I've been hoarding - I love the warm vintage colors. I ran the mat layer through my Cuttlebug using the snowflakes folder, and cut the watercolor paper panel out with Nestabilities. I embossed the edge, and used a Sakura Glitter Pen to highlight it. My fairy is watercolored using ink and an aquapainter.

All around fairly simple, but sweet and fun! I think I might make a few of these for holiday cards! Be sure to visit the other Flutter By girls to see their beautiful creations! The links are to the right, in the sidebar :) Have a great day!!

Materials:
  • Cardstock: Cranberry Crisp, True Thyme, FM Watercolor
  • Stamps: LAD Fairy, Christmas Magic
  • Ink: Cranberry Crisp, True Thyme, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Tools: Nesties Labels 4, Sakura Glitter Pen, Aquapainter, Copic Marker E00
  • Accessories: Brown Twill Ribbon
