Christmas Fairy

Although I made this card a while ago, I couldn’t spoil the surprise by sharing it before it was opened by the recipient!

This winter fairy stamp is one of my favourite stamps ever and I have coloured her with my Spectrum Noir pens in shades of coral and green. Some Stickles adds a bit of festive bling!

The cracker shaped card base is made using colour core card embossed with a pretty sprig pattern. I used a festive stripy paper whose colours coordinated with the Spectrum Noirs perfectly to trim each side. Finally I tied some cream and gold ribbon to make the cracker bows.

The acetate ‘dome’ has a snowy pattern printed on it, and gives the cracker a more three dimensional shape.
