Unfortunately, this will be the last challenge they will be hosting so please join in for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice from Lawn Fawn.

I’ll be using the Frosty Fairy Friends stamp set for this challenge. I started out my card by stamping out the fairies and the house and coloured them with Copic markers .

After I finished colouring the images, I die cut them using their coordinating dies, then proceeded to cut all the other pieces I needed, since I had my Cuttlebug out anyways. I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Mountain Border, Stitched Hillside BorderStitched Tree Border, and MFT’s Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames. The frame was cut out of a page in the  Perfectly Plaid Christmas Petite 6×6 Paper Pack. When I buy supplies, I don’t usually buy patterned paper because I would rather spend money on new stamps or dies, but I absolutely love Lawn Fawn’s plaid paper packs! The patterns and colours are beautiful and the paper itself is nice and thick.

Anyways, while I still had my Cuttlebug out, I cut a piece of light blue card stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and then ran it through using the We R Memory Keepers Gemstone Next Level Embossing Folder. I used the folder that looked like crumpled paper. The Next Level Embossing Folders are a bit thicker so I had to play with my stack to get it to work in my Cuttlebug. Normally for embossing you use 1 A plate and 2 B plates but I found it was too thick to run through my machine. I found the best stack for me was: A PLATE-B PLATE-NEXT LEVEL EMBOSSING FOLDER-REGULAR EMBOSSING FOLDER.

I then proceeded to position everything on my card front and adhere it with 3M Foam Tape so it had more dimension. Lastly, I adhered my card front to my card base with some a tape runner adhesive, added some clear sparkling sequins, and brushed the fairy wings with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Overlay Pen.

Update: Feb. 25, 2017- I got around to editing the footage for a Youtube video, so you can check that out here!

That finishes up my card for this challenge. I have one more holiday card in the works so I will be back shortly with that.
