A for Almost Christmas

A for Almost Christmas - Hi! I had the opportunity to guest design for ABC-Challenge. Their challenge is A for Almost Christmas! Perfect for this time of year! Thank you, Nikki, for inviting me! I had a lot of fun designing this card.

My DP is MME Winter Wonderland. The papers were inked with Peacock Feathers and Stormy Sky distress inks.

My image is Christmas Candy Fairy by the sponsor of this challenge, The Paper Shelter. I colored her with Copics and cut her out with a SB die. I did the faux frame technique using the Stormy Sky distress ink and the SB die. I added Stickles to the fur on her dress and slippers. I also dragged out my Spica pens for the gold on the ribbon.

My snowflake off the edge is a MS punch.The mistletoe is MD die. The flowers were in my stash and I inked the tips with the same distress inks. The pearl spray is from Hobby Lobby.

This die is a SB that I embossed and stenciled on with the peacock Feathers ink. My paper is pearled and gives off a really nice sheen.
