Gift Wrapping..

 
Hi Ladies

Hope you're all well...  I've been ultra-busy this week, so if you were thinking I was MIA... I'm sorry, and I'll be around your blogs soon.  I have a quiet afternoon planned... so computer, here I come..

Now OK.... I give in.... I'm starting my Christmas cards!!  And I'm here today to share my Sugar Nellie DT card.... with this fabulous Christmas fairy!



I've used this gorgeous little fairy digi image... she's called 'Gift Wrapping' and is available from Funky Kits here.


I chose to colour her in blues using my copics to match the paper (from LOTV).  As I wasn't using a die to cut the square, I thought a bit of doodling my help to define the edge... and added a few pearl dots with Cosmic Shimmer Glue around the white space too.  

As I didn't have any plain card in the right colour to edge the card and image, I used my copic deeper blue to colour just the edge of a pale blue card.. a handy tip as I got EXACTLY the right colour by doing it that way.  

The sentiment is from Poppy Stamps... and the die is a Memory Box Gabriella border die.

Don't forget you still have time to enter our Furry Friends competition at Sugar Nellie.... details HERE.

Thanks for looking today - hope you have time to say hello...

Hugs

  6. I have a confession to make... I really like blue! Especially for Christmas cards! Ok, hope I'm not getting the sack from the Pink Palace for that revelation... he he!

    I have made a start on my Christmas cards as well, which is really early for me in August! Probably a good thing TBH.

    Ok, the card though... it's GORGEOUS! The fairy is beautiful, the doodling works a treat and the snowflake border is...now on my wishlist - lol!

    Big hugs, Kat xx
