Sweet Winter Fairy...

I just couldn't wait to make this card using my new digi image AND a new stack of of Christmas papers. They are so beautiful. I actually purchased the 12X12 stack from the Martha Pullen website. It is called "Winterbird" from the Tilda line. They have matching fabric and other neat stuff too!

This darling image is called "Winter Fairy" and is designed by Silvia Zet. I now have four images but have only colored two so far. This one is printed on Cryogen White card stock and colored with Copic Markers. I can't find the little post-it-note that I wrote down all the colors I used. So sorry!

Here is my card front...

I can't remember where I found the sketch - that information was on my post-it-note also. Bummer...

Here is a closer look and my Winter Fairy...

I finished the inside by printing out only the little bird on the circle. It took a bit of manipulating, and erasing the parts of the image I didn't want to show, but I really like how it turned out...

And again, a close up of the image...the sentiment here is from "All That Scraps" and is a new AmyR stamp set called Handy Christmas Greetings. It was a steal - 12 sentiments for just $8!

Finally, here is and angled view of the card. I used my sewing machine to sew around all the panels, the pearls were a gift from my special fiend Paola, the card stock is from SU, ribbon is a wired ribbon from my stash, also the bakers twine from my stash. The button is from my large button bin! The little sleigh in the right hand corner is something I found in my stash of charms and I colored the presents with my copic markers. On the card stock which runs horizontally under the ribbon, I used my crimping tool. I used Stardust Stickles on the wings and some Pastel Pink Pearl Maker.

Thank you so very much for your visit and for all the fabulous comments you leave to encourage me along! Have a fabulous weekend...

Hugs and blessings,
