Wish upon a star


It is me, Marianne, which will show you a card today. I`m so happy to be on the Sugar Nellie team, and I`m very excited to do my first post here on the blog. The card I want to show you is a Christmas card with this ohh so sweet little Christmas fairy from the Jingle bells & Tinkle bells range. This little beauty is called “Wish upon a star”, and you can buy her and all of her lovely friends at Funky Kits.


For the shape of my card I have used a chipboard frame as a template, and cut it out by hand. The papers I have used are from Maja Design, and the paper with the small hearts is actually from the summer collection, but don`t tell anyone:) I think it looks nice on a Christmas card too.
I have colored the image with Prisma Colors, and I have stamped swirls around it with Distress Ink – Weathered Wood. I have distressed all the edges on my card with the same color. I have made the hinges by using a corner punch from Martha Stewart on strips of paper, and the snowflakes are also made from MS punches.


Here is a close up of this sweet image. As you can see I have added some glitter to really make her sparkle.  If you like you can visit my blog, and here you can see another card I have made with this image, but with completely different colors.
I wish you all a sweet and creative weekend.
Hugs from Marianne.

Your soft colouring with the pencils is delightful & I love the shape of your card with those hinges. Your swirl stamping around the edge of the image panel is so effective too.
