Today's card is another Christmas card, I've had this Anita's stamp for many years and I use it a lot. I've coloured it with my Copics. I've not coloured snow before so I tried C0 which is a very pale grey, I think it works. I've added glitter (any excuse) to the snowballs, scarves and trilby. My die cut is a Spellbinders, the green layer is coloured with Copics and the red glittered card stock is hand cut. I've made the ribbon out of two ribbons and made the bow with just the narrow one. My backing paper is from the Silent Night stack from Papermania with a green paper underneath to show at the edge.

I'm entering this card into my first challenge at

I made this card quite quickly, it's the kind of card to suit many occasions don't you think? The butterfly is cut from the Art Nouveau cartridge at 4". I've glittered some areas and added gems to pick out the body and highlight the wings. The embossed paper is from Create and Craft. I've added 2 layers beneath, one is the same card as the butterfly and the deeper pink is embossed and again from Create and Craft. The pattern paper I've had in my stash and forgotten about, I cut it with a Go Kreate die. I tend to make a number of die cuts to add to my collection when I've got my machine out as the Big Shot Pro is heavy and takes up space. This means I'm often able to make a card like this quite quickly as the shapes are already done. Likewise when I'm exploring a new cart I again keep what I've cut. It's so useful to work this way when like me you don't have a craft room large enough to work in.

So here it is then. My digi stamp is by Lilyboo called My heart belongs to you. I've coloured it with my Copics and of course as you'd expect from me I've glittered the fairy's wings. I've touched the edges of the dragons back and horns with gold mica paint and also a little to the fairy's hair for a sheen. The gold coloured embossed paper layer is from Create and Craft, it rather reminds me of dragon skin. The frame is a cut from Ornamental Iron. My background paper is by Bazoo, I think the hearts go well with the image as does the glitter finish on it. The sentiment is mounted on the same papers as the image. Gems in the top left finish it off.

Cuddly Buddly which I've coloured with my Copics. I've glittered her wings the moon and also the butterfly as it's so right for fairies. The oval die cut and the butterfly are Spellbinders. The lace ribbon is a cut from Ribbons and Rosettes layered on top of pink ribbon. I've used a background paper from a CD with two layers of pink toned paper beneath. The white leaves are a Martha Stewart punch and the pink roses are made from the Art Philosophy cart. I've stamped my sentiment and matted and layered it the same papers as on the card. Pearls inside the roses complete my card. Inside is a greeting on paper from a CD.
