Festive Fairy

Eek my first Christmas card for 2014.  When I saw this Vintage Frost digi kit from MicheleR Design I fell in love!  The soft colours are just delicious.

I used flowers and seam binding from Wild Orchid Craftsopen roses 15mm, Cosmos Daisies, 25mm wild roses and stamensI also popped a brad in the centre of the snowflake to attach it to the bow.

The stamp is Festive Fairy from LOTV, coloured with markers and pencils.  I’m sorry I did not make a note of the colours I used.

Petal

Phew, what a fortnight this has been!  Backwards and forwards to the doctors for yet more tests.  I swear there can’t be much blood left in me for them to take lol.  Anyhow, on to a card I finally managed to finish this morning ……. I have been on it for ages.  I have used one of the LOTV fairy stamps, this is Petal.  And I have used one of the most delicious digi kits from MicheleR Design.  Oh my goodness, these colours are just stunning.  The kit is Vintage Fall.  I have used the papers, inserts (these really make the inside of the card so pretty and are a doddle to use), and elements 2 (for the sentiment on the inside).  Michele has 25% off so scroll down to the end of the post to get the code

bev-rochester-lotv-petal

A look at the insert.  I separated the insert so I could mat and layer the individual pages, then printed off a sentiment and matted on to a scalloped die.  The doily is actually part of the insert design – fab or what!!!

Copic markers used:
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, 0000, R20
Hair: E59, 57, 53, 51, 50
Dress: V95, 93, 91
Shoes, wings and leaves: BG99; 95; 93, 91, G20
Flower: RV99, 95, 93, 91, 0000

Flowers and rhinestones are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used a classic rose, 25mm wild rose, sweetheart blossoms, open roses (15mm), miniature gardenia flowers
