Bah! Humbug! Holly and Fairies

Well folks - here we go again.......... only just taken the Christmas cards down and Bah! Humbug! has started up their challenges again!

The first one is Holly and Fairies and whilst I was clearing my table (!!!) I found this card that I had started last year and the white card had already been die cut using a Nellie Snellen frame die and mounted onto red card - so I thought that was a good place to start.  I decoupaged all the layers of the die cut up using Pinflair glue gel and then stamped this image of a Christmas fairy praying from Lili of the Valley which I coloured in with Promarkers.  The wings are made from Angelina Fibres although it doesn't show up very well in the photo.  I used Stickles on the holly berries in her hair and used glue gel to add her to the top of the decoupaged die cuts.  I then stamped a corner holly leaf image at each corner and added more Stickles to the berries.  It's a very simple card but hopefully will ease me into crafting for next Christmas!!  lol

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I like this one but as you say it does seem strange to start seasonal cards already. Quite lucky though that we had a few bits ready on our desks!!

  2. ah what a sweet angel - love the background for her.
    Thanks for joining us at Bah! Humbug! and good luck in the draw.
