Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am just sneaking down to the computer for a few minutes while the potatoes are cooking to post a card I made with one of Amy's new Holiday fairies that will be available on Monday at All That Scraps! This is Holly Starshine! Isn't she adorable!? I LOVE these fairies!! Amy is so talented!!
I have been wondering lately if I provide enough information on the making of my cards. I always give the recipe, but unless there is something a little unusual I don't give an explanation. If you would like me to write more about them, let me know. On this card card, I used an EK Success Holly border punch (although it was called a border punch, it actually cut that strip out). I cut a white strip of cardstock slightly smaller than the border strip, held the border strip over it and marked with dots of color where the openings were. I then colored those areas with a green and red marker so that when I layered the black border piece over it the leaves showed green and the berries showed red. I also used a glitter pen to draw veins on all of the leaves. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that I used the Taylored Expressions #92 sketch!!
