Snowflakes for a Fairy....

Hi Susan here....

Yes...I have made another Christmas card....I love them, but most of all I love these new Sugar Nellie Stamps...they are gorgeous and so inspirational, you just can't help make cards with them!!

Anyway, as I have told you before I need some extra cards this year and wanted some extra special ones so I have been spending some time and making an array of cards all different.....I hope you all like them.

Well what do you think....I adore pink Christmas cards they are so different from the traditional ones, and of course it just happens to be my favourite colour.

The ribbon, lace and pearls are from our local market. The snowflake edges are a die from Tim Holtz, love it so much!! The smaller silver snowflakes are made using a punch.
I have used another die for the swirls, and then coloured them with inks to match the colour scheme.
My backing paper is a beautiful pink multi-tonal paper with snowflakes all over it, this I have had in my stash for years...finally using it!!

This view is so that you can see how it stands up with the snowflakes on the sides.

This is the most beautiful little fairy ever....her name is Titania, and I have used promarkers to colour the image. Unfortunately it looks like I have left the skirt plain but I promise you it is coloured in a very delicate shade of pink. Stickles have been added to the wings and wand.

My flowers are a mix, the smaller roses and buds are from Hobby Craft and the large white one I made using a die, the leaves I made using card, deckle scissors and inks.

Thank you so much for looking, I hope you liked it, your comments mean so much to me.
Love Susan
