Holly Fairy

     One more Christmas card to add to my annual stash which is now growing slowly but steadily.  Today's card has a really fun Holly Fairy from Bugaboo Stamps.


     I kept this design really CAS because so many of my Christmas cards have to be mailed and CAS is the best style for slipping into an envelope.

     She's colored with ProMarkers, then I cut the image using two different corner dies from Cheery Lynn.  I matted it with red CS and corner punched it.  That entire piece was mounted onto the card front at an angle and I used red ink on the card edges.

     Finally, I added the sentiment and the 'bow tie' bow made with red ribbon for a touch of embellishment.
